Libraries Supporting Entrepreneurship

Mission: Start Krosslink @ 10,000 Public Libraries by 2025.

Most jobs are created by entrepreneurs running small businesses. Yet most entrepreneurs fail within 90 days. Starting a new venture is a very lonely experience. In order to succeed, aspiring entrepreneurs need a supportive community around them. Krosslink.org is a volunteer-driven community program created to help develop, nurture, and foster entrepreneurship by connecting aspiring entrepreneurs to local business leaders, mentors and civic leaders who can help them achieve their goals. The program creates a unique link with local libraries that empowers them to evolve their mission into “Entrepreneur Greenhouses”. The result is a vibrant eco-system where individuals looking to build a business can find resources and activities to kick start their plans such as networking events with other business leaders, a collaborative workspace filled with keynote speakers, bar-stool pitch sessions, facilitated meet-up sessions and mentoring by SCORE business experts.
