Finding Local Business Information and Why Would You Care?

Hi all,

The topic of “finding local business information” might not sound relevant for a technical audience, but there are many instance in which it could very well be. 

 Considering entering into a cooperative research agreement with a small firm outside your stomping grounds?  Received an RFP from a potential new supplier but don’t know too much about them? Thinking of expanding manufacturing to another State/town?  These are just a few examples of the need for local business information.

It so happens that an AIIP colleague, Marcy Phelps, has written an outstanding book on finding local business information — Research on Main Street

And another  AIIP colleague, Ellen Naylor, wrote a comprehensive blog post about a recent webinar by Marcy,  on strategies, techniques, and sources to find local  business information.  It’s still on my to-do list to sign-in for a recorded version of that webinar but even if I’d attended it already I could not have written a better post.  So read Ellen’s instead.  Strategies, Techniques, and Sources to Find Local  Business Information.

And let me – or them – know if you need any research assistance 🙂
