Good, free resources for small businesses and entrepreneurs

In response to a query at BUSLIB:

MaRS Discovery District's online resource, The Startup Library, helps entrepreneurs in different tech industries answer common market research questions. All links are to free resources.

Bizstats.com has free business statistics and financial ratios. This is a partner site of BizMiner.com; BizMiner is not free, but has more up-to-date, detailed, and much more granular industry statistical reports.

Another list of free online business resources that entrepreneurs and the like might appreciate is bizologie.com/favoriteresources.

Manta.com is available free; a registration is required for optimal access, but that's free, too). It will give competitors, contacts, and other useful info for small, privately held businesses around the country.

Have a look at the Small Business Accelerator. While tailored to meet the needs of British Columbia entrepreneurs, you will find much valuable, transferable information.
