Small Business Seminars

The City of Berkeley Public Library offers assistance to Small Business throughout the year.  Monthly, in collaboration with the the Alameda County Small Business Development Center interactive small business seminars are offered. Classes cover management basics for new business ventures and specialized subject  matter for experience entrepreneurs.

Seminars are led by experienced professionals who overview their topics, provide several real-world examples and answer questions from the audience. Most seminars finish with a panel of experts that provide additional insight, participate in a lively question and answer session and then stay to speak with attendees one-on-one after the seminar.
