Resources for Women Entrepreneurs

The Edward Jones Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Drury University recently hosted the 2011 Women’s Entrepreneurship Symposium. This was a great chance for women to learn about different aspects of entrepreneurship from other women and to network with other women in business.

Dr. Regina Waters of Drury University promoted public libraries as a rich source of information in a session on guerrilla marketing. She specifically highlighted the BusinessDecision* database available at the Library. This database allows users to create detailed demographic reports based on geographic location.

Dr. Waters also recommended a few books to help women entrepreneurs. The She Spot gives insight to the female consumer, and The Yahoo! Style Guide is a great source for web design.

Other books for women entrepreneurs and marketing to women available at the Library include:


Learn more about the BusinessDecision database and other resources for small business owners by visiting the Funding and Business Information Center at The Library Center or by contacting business librarian Kelly Miller at 417-616-0540.
