Writing a business plan, selling the plan, raising capital, locating customers, marketing the business–the work of the entrepreneur never ends! Now Proquest has developed a database devoted exclusively to helping entrepreneurs find the information they need to save time and execute a successful venture. The Entrepreneurship Database targets practitioners and researchers. Database content includes articles, tools and templates, business cases, and more than 11,000 video clips of successful entrepreneurs offering encouragement and advice. Access to the database is seamless on campus; off-campus users will be prompted to type in their name and 14-digit barcode number (located on your student ID).
