This Thursday’s class will feature Nathan Kaiser of 2Bar Distillery and Terry Drayton of Storrage. They’ll talk about defining your product, identifying your market, communicating your value, and other marketing skills. We’ll also have a visit from Jason Sokoloff, Foster Business Research Librarian. Resource Nights are open to the public. Can’t make it? No problem. We’re recording it! Watch it here.
