Data Resources for Entrepreneurs (CCR)

March 7, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

The ability to ask and answer real-world questions from large and small data sets, and to communicate that information to others, is becoming a requirement for innovation and entrepreneurship. This interactive session will introduce you to the data literacy skills you will need to find, select, evaluate, and communicate stories from data that will help you with your business pitch and business plan.

Participants will learn to:

  • Find, identify, and select types of marketing, consumer, demographic and economic data
  • Navigate major databases and data catalogues, via hands-on experience
  • Critically evaluate the suitability of data resources to meet their needs

Note: This workshop is free and registration is required. However, we have a minimum attendance threshold for this course to run. If you cannot attend this workshop, and fail to withdraw 48+ hours in advance, thereby preventing others on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $10. Please note, it is your responsibility to sign-in next to your name on the attendance sheet for this workshop. A blank signature spot will result in a penalty charge.
