Resources for our entrepreneurs to use for research, business, and personal assistance on their venture goals.

The Blackstone Launchpad powered by Techstars has updated its innovation and entrepreneurship book collection at SU Libraries.  The collection is located at the front doors of the LaunchPad, first floor, Bird Library.  You’ll find titles on creativity, design thinking, lean startup, brand development, sales and marketing, product development, venture development, financing, team building and company culture, and creating social impact through innovation — along with biographies and memoirs by successful entrepreneurs.  The collection is unique, because it was curated by innovators and entrepreneurs, which means the titles are especially relevant and engaging.  Have a suggestion for a great book you've read that we should add to the collection?  Let us know!
