Cole’s article,“Who Needs Business School? The Hidden Startup Resources at your Local Library,”perfectly tells the value story of public libraries and specifically, how you support local entrepreneurs and foster economic growth. Do you ever read or hear something and think to yourself, “I couldn’t have said it better myself!”? This is one of those moments. What Cole has explained about libraries—and how she has explained it—is evidence-based and right on point.
Cole may be right—these may be hidden secrets—but with a monthly online readership 6.3 million entrepreneurs, opinion leaders and business professionals, this gem of an article goes a long way toward exposing what we’ve known all along:“Libraries are an indispensable resource for communities—especially for people looking to start a business.”
我鼓励你阅读和分享文章yourself, but here are some of the “hidden secrets” highlighted by the author:
