What is IP?

Every business owns Intellectual Property (IP) which is described as “something that you create using your mind, such as a story, an invention, an artistic work or a symbol.”

Your business logo for example is part of your IP which holds both copyright and trademark rights.

BIPC North East is based at Newcastle City Library, with BIPC locals across the region. This is where you can access IP advice covering copyright, trademark, designs and patents, as well as market research and grant finder searches. You can also benefit from specialist knowledge and training workshops with the BIPC Experts in Residence.

Who are the Experts in Residence?

Ann is one of over 35 BIPC Experts in Residence, who are experts by experience because they also run small businesses themselves. They volunteers their time to assist other local businesses across a broad range of topics. If you need helpful advice, there will be an expert who can guide you.

You can book an appointment with Ann or any of the experts to discuss various business issues, including finance, sustainability, accessibility, e-commerce and sales via BIPC website. Ann specialises in Visual Marketing, providing free advice on how to visually communicate your ideas, brand, products, services, and experiences.
