April Business Programs Focus on Nonprofit Board Fundraising, Intellectual Property and Investing

| No Comments

The Peterson Business Services Center at Greenwich Library has a great line-up of programs planned for April. This month, visiting experts will give workshops on the importance of board member involvement in fundraising, intellectual property and market math for young investors. Greenwich Library Business Librarians are available to help you navigate the Library's extensive databases, directories, investor information and nonprofit resources via email or in person. 

Tuesday, April 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Mobilize Your Board to Raise Funds 
Nonprofit board members no longer have the option of saying, "I don't raise funds." This workshop provides tools to both incentivize board members and to help them become more comfortable with the grant-seeking process. Presented by Judith Margolin, Principal in the consulting firm, Need a Grant. In the Meeting Room, register online through the Greenwich Library calendar. For more information email a Business Librarian or call (203) 622-7924. 

Wednesday, April 16 from 6-8:00 p.m., Intellectual Property Workshop - SCORE 
Intellectual Property is the foundation of many successful businesses and it is important to develop a strategy early on. Proper protection of IP can increase valuation when searching for investors and can protect your position in the market. This SCORE sponsored workshop will provide an introduction to trademarks, copyrights, patents and trade secrets. In the Meeting Room, register through the Greenwich Library calendar. Check-in starts at 5:30, program at 6:00 p.m. For more information email a Business Librarian or call (203) 622-7924. 

Monday, April 21 from 7-8:45 p.m., Market Math for Young Investors 
Author Julie Jason will discuss the intricacies of investing. Although the program is aimed at younger investors, experienced investors will also benefit. Julie Jason is chief investment officer of Jackson, Grant Investment Advisers, Inc. A proponent of investor protection and financial literacy, she writes and lectures about financial security. Her award-winning weekly investor-education column, which launched in 1998 in the Stamford Advocate/Greenwich Time, is syndicated by King Features. Julie has written a number of investment books, sharing her view that there is always something you can do to improve your situation. In the Meeting Room, no registration required. For more information email a Business Librarian or call (203) 625-6560. 

Bloomberg Terminal 
Patrons can sign up to use the Bloomberg Professional Service computer at the Main Reference Desk or sign up in advance by calling (203) 622-7910. 

The Peterson Business Wing is located on the Main Level of the Greenwich Library. Funds for construction of this wing and its endowment were the generous gift of Clementine Lockwood Peterson, whose bequest funded the Business Library in memory of her husband, J. Whitney Peterson. Business materials and databases are paid for by funds from the Town of Greenwich and the Peterson Foundation.
