Accelerate Your Startup Research for the Challenges
Rev up your startup research with help from librarians from across the Harvard Library system!
This dynamic, interactive workshop will focus on your startup research challenges, questions and concerns. We’ll show you tips and tricks to more strategically and effectively approach your research. Not sure where to start? Not sure which libraries and sources are available to you? Not sure which databases hold the information that your team needs? Librarians will help with all of these questions (and more!) to ensure your research success in the competitive startup environment. We’ll help you to:
- Discover discipline-specific tools and strategies to chart the frontiers of research and practice.
- Understand the wealth of information that you have access to via the libraries- including information on regulations and advances in the sciences.
- Scan the current business environment that you’ll be entering; identify competitors; research an industry, company or market.
- Identify important links between education, venture creation and entrepreneurial performance.
