"Resource Tip" is a recurring and rotating section that will point to various regional and national resources for entrepreneurs.
You'll never know when you will need a specific resource for your business, and there are so many options out there it can be hard to keep track. The Wharton Small Business Development Center (WSBDC) at the University of Pennsylvania provides an extensive list of links for a variety of needs. The list covers a wide range of resources that are local, regional, national and international. Topics are also available for women-owned and minority-owned businesses, and include information on financing, copyrights, legal issues, market research and business plan writing.

Familiarizing yourself with many of the free resources available for entrepreneurs is a must if you want to leverage available assistance and advance your business. For example, the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Philadelphia has done a lot of the legwork and compiled a searchable directory of resources for entrepreneurs. Whether you're looking for a mentor, a co-working space, or funding, you can bookmark this directory for a regular referral. For those living outside the region, many local Chambers provide similar resources.
