Business Insight Center
The Business Insight Center at the Rochester Public Library helps small businesses with market research, business plans and other services at no cost. Its market research services, for example, can help identify potential customers.
It subscribes to more than 10 proprietary databases to help you research market trends, intellectual property landscapes, patent holdings, registered trademarks and business and financial reports.
Startups can access examples of business plans, industry surveys, and direct mailing lists. The center also offers help with funding sources, entrepreneur assistance programs and business mentoring.
Requests for research can be made by phone or email. In person consultations are by appointment only.
