Free library series to teach money management | Business
Small business classes at area libraries
Madison Public Library and Wisconsin Women's Business Initiative Corp. are planning a financial and business planning class series beginning Feb. 28.
The first session will focus on business plan research including how to learn key facts about a potential market. "Researching Your Business Idea" will be offered at the Verona Public Library on Silence Street Feb. 28 from 6-8 p.m. and at Pinney Library on Cottage Grove Road May 30.
Organizers described market research as a systematic, objective collection and analysis of data about a particular target market, competition and environment. Attendees will learn what a local library can offer in gathering market information and the materials, magazines, association directories and other references that can help.
A personal business-focused class on March 21 will focus on legal documents for estate planning. The two-hour session beginning at 6 p.m. at the Sequoya Library on Tokay Boulevard will teach key elements of the process.
Other free classes in the series will touch on technologies for small businesses and money management.
