More Findings on libraries supporting entrepreneurship and more

I concluded a rough week and have now began a rough half week. Anyway, today I want to report on my latest findings related to my thesis topic.

Now for those wondering why all the interest in entrepreneurship by this information professional, here is a link that manifests part of my vision for libraries: libraries supporting entrepreneurship:

Libraries and Economic Development « Supporting Entrepreneurship

It is a blog that actually details the case of actual libraries/ a library that seeks to directly impact economic development.

Also I looked at this week an article on Canada job losses at This was important as in talking with someone about my business project, she was skeptical as to whether libraries need to support entrepreneurship in Canada as she argued that recessions always occur, and over time give way to times of prosperity. As such, it might not be worthwile for libraries to support something just because unemployment and job losses are going through a cyclical process.

Also picked up on my radar was something about the floating immigrant business incubator at

Here it is reported that a
Startup hopes to hack the immigration system with a floating incubator [as]... American immigration law makes it difficult for foreigners to found businesses in the United States. A new startup by the name of Blueseed hopes to solve the problem by parking a ship in international waters off the coast of Silicon Valley.
I also wanted to feature and introduce the first academic business library that I found to provide support for student entrepreneurs: at Santa Clara University, Leavey School of Business.
