Calling All Small Businesses!

A row of business fronts illustrated in blues, grays, and whites. The words "Data Axle: Reference Solutions" hovers over the buildings.

For the last 30 years, Data Axle has provided exclusive data on over 17 million businesses and 320 million residents through their preeminent online tool, Reference Solutions (formerly ReferenceUSA).

Join us on June 26 for a free small business workshop where you'll learn to:

  • Access Reference Solutions from home or business through the Digital Library.
  • Identify fellow small businesses to connect with.
  • Discover new sales prospects.
  • Create customized contact lists for marketing to businesses, customers, and even new residents in Long Beach.
  • Define efficient delivery routes.
  • Gather information about competitors throughout the U.S.

The City of Long Beach BizCare team will also be there to answer questions and offer resources on small business grants, loans, City policies, and more.

Registration is required. Walk-ins are welcome if space permits.


The same workshop will be hosted at each location. We encourage you to attend the time that is most convenient for you.
