Finding the right market can turn a great idea into a great business. However, entrepreneurs working with emerging technologies and disruptive innovations struggle with the decision to start the business and convince investors to fund them. Some Seattle-area startups are rediscovering a forgotten secret to business success: market research help from a library.

Join this panel as we talk about how to navigate through useful data for startups and reveal solutions that have helped entrepreneurs in one of the hottest startup markets in the US. You’ll hear strategies from two business librarians and get the perspective of an entrepreneur who used library services to help her launch Cirkled In.
