Today’s universities are increasingly pressured to provide students not only with critical thinking skills and a solid knowledge foundation within their chosen area, but also with practical skills to help them compete for jobs. The Entrepreneurship Database provides access to key scholarship, tools, and resources to help entrepreneurs and students navigate the complex world of small business. It contains a diverse collection of resources including journals, industry reports, video clips, “how to” books, templated forms, business plan samples, and more from top publishers.

  • Content Type: Scholarly Journals, Standards and Practice Guidelines, Books, Conference Papers and Proceedings, Dissertations and Theses, Magazine, Other sources, Reports, Tables, Trade Journals, Wire Feeds, Working Papers, Video and Audio
  • Thousands of video clips help prepare students for classroom presentations and business case/venture competitions.
  • The Entrepreneurship Database brings together resources to support the theory or practice of entrepreneurship in a specially designed interface that helps users quickly find information in which they are most interested.
  • Tools and resources such as business plans, marketing plans, forms, and templates support class projects and provide supporting materials for competition presentations.
  • Research and reports provide students with resources to support projects and funding/venture capital tasks. Plus, students can browse funding sources for debt and equity financing to find articles and information on sources for funding.
  • A browse feature helps students review topics and identify new opportunities for entrepreneurial exploration and discovery, or find existing opportunities to exploit.
  • The Entrepreneurship Database extends beyond just aggregated journal content by delivering a diverse collection of resources including video clips, “how to” books, templates forms, business plan samples, and more from top publishers.
  • While quite powerful as a stand-alone product, the collection resides on the award-winning ProQuest platform and gains value from being able to be used with other ProQuest products including the ABI/INFORM Collection, the authority in business research, allowing users to obtain a more expansive results set.
  • Business cases provide faculty with tools to provide real-world examples and projects for curriculum building.
