Preparing a business pitch and developing a business idea requires you to have data on your target market. You need data to inform decisions on your business plan, data on your competitors, and if you want to be innovative in your industry you need data to tell you a story on performance and opportunity. Data literacy for entrepreneurs is essential. This session will help you identify your data needs, find relevant data using specialized library resources, and evaluate and synthesize data using critical thinking.  

Learning outcomes

LaTeX is a free document creation alternative to MS Word which specializes in the creation of professional documents such as journal articles, theses, books, and scientific or technical reports. LaTeX is the standard for writing in many STEM fields and offers advantages for managing references, typesetting maths, inserting graphics and figures, and much more.  In this workshop, you will create a simple LaTeX document using Overleaf, and practice using some core LaTeX features.  

By the end of the session, participants should be able to accomplish tasks such as:

    Access LaTeX on their computer via Overleaf Create a simple LaTeX document Insert equations, figures, and tables Insert references and create a bibliography
