C302 - Libraries as Awesome Incubators11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
If STEAM is the education of youth, and maker is the creativity of adolescence, then entrepreneur is the resulting adult. Did you know libraries make awesome "incubators" for startups? Libraries offer information, resources, and training on how to start a business, provide "co-working spaces," and tools for entrepreneurs. This session shows the result of one library's first Startup Weekend event, how it was organized, its impact on the library, and how you can organize one at your library. Learn how the library turned the inter-generational Maker Lab into a space that promotes entrepreneurship and innovation by connecting users with traditional library services. Hear about some of the projects and companies that were founded/created using the tools and services provided at the library.
