Do you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur? Do you have the guts, creativity, and skills to join the ranks of America’s small business owners? If so, great; you’ve come to the right place!
According to the Small Business Association, half of all small businesses fail within the first ten years. That’s a scary statistic, but you can increase your chances of success with a plan built with the right information, the information available in the Grand Rapids Public Library Small Business Resource Center. In addition to a great collection of business information resources, both print and digital, we also offer a curriculum of small business classes in everything from market research to social media! Our next class ‘Using Facebook to Promote Your Business,’ will be held on February 23rd from 1:00 to 3:00, followed by our Market Research Series held in partnership with the Michigan Small Business and Technology Development Center beginning March 6th.
Further, are you planning on being a social entrepreneur, looking to instigate change? As a Cooperating Collection of the Foundation Center, we also support non-profit entrepreneurs with extensive resources, and classes too! Come attend our next class, ‘Intro to Finding Funders,’ on February 9th.
