The Pekin Public Library will be opening its free database, ReferenceUSA, to interested Central Illinois business owners on June 27. The database is designed to help local aspiring business owners learn how to start and manage a small business.
The free training session will be held at noon at the Pekin Public Library. The entrepreneurs can learn how to use the database, which will help them to find mission-critical information to grow their businesses. Topics covered by the reference materials include finding new employees, conducting competitive analysis, securing investors, networking and much more.
The program is presented by Nancy Spidle of Infogroup. All participants must register beforehand, and lunch will be served to attendees. To register, please call the library at 309-347-7111.
