Be an Incubator to Your Business Community

Presented by: Gale & Library Journal
Event Date & Time: Thursday, September 28, 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PT

Local businesses generate 70% more local economic activity per square foot than big box retail, reports the Anderson Study of Retail Economics. Learn how to be an incubator to your business community. Panelists will cover these topics and more:

  • Connecting with your business community
  • Types of services small businesses and startups require
  • Supporting your business community without a business librarian or subject matter expert
  • Benefits of being your business community’s BFF

Attendees will come away with actionable programming wins, outreach activities, and best practices for developing an entrepreneurial ecosystem within their community. Register for this event and you’ll also learn how a new self-guided planning tool, Gale Small Business Builder can help businesses and nonprofits increase their likelihood of success through proper business planning.
