The Library’s Resources for Entrepreneurs

As the weather gets colder here in Chicago, it’s harder to leave a warm home or office or coffee shop to get where we want to go. But don’t let the cold stop you from coming to a Geeks in Residence talk! The best thing about these talks is that you can bring your questions to real people, and have real conversations about your business ideas. Let our experience inform yours!

Because the GIR talks present such a unique opportunity, one of the best pieces of advice we’ve heard from speakers is that you should come with questions. The best way to shape your questions and get the most out of a GIR talk is to do your research ahead of time. So, before you come to a talk at the library, visit the library — online! The Chicago Public Library has great resources for entrepreneurs and technologists. Taking a look at what they have ahead of time helps you shape your strategies and focus questions so that you can make the most of your time with the Geeks.
