What Libraries Need To Know To Help Local Businesses Succeed (archived webinar)

All Day

Event Details

This is an archived webinar.  You will receive a magic link to watch it via email the day before it is scheduled.  But don't let this fool you.  The magic link allows you to view it at any time...day or night.   

This particular online experience is a mere 60 minutes in length.  Easy to fit into your busy schedule.  

The cost you ask?   No charge for SERLS members...a mere $15.00 for all other libraries.  Enjoy. 


Libraries help people start and grow neighborhood businesses with programs on government licensing and funding, as well as workshops on research. 

But how many people on your staff have ever run a successful business? 

How can you help the self-employed professional or artisan who won’t qualify for a bank loan? 

What about the unemployed dreamer who needs a reality check about what it takes to open a restaurant or make money from an invention?


Who in your community can offer advice that applies to current business models? Can you offer business-support services that will actual create new jobs in your community?


Participants will learn how to:


·         Better see, hear, and understand the challenges of small business success: It is not just about filling out forms.

·         Identify and target the different kinds of businesses, business models, and business owners:

·         Build a team of local business owners to provide advice on relevant programming.

·         Create a database of hands-on experts who can give the real scoop on planning, funding, marketing, and personnel issues.
