Abstract

In   1996  the  U S   government   eliminated  federal  funding  for   Small  Business  Institutes, resulting  in a significant  loss of formal  SBI membership.   A poll  of Small  Business  Institute Directors Association members identified five schools that had started new SBI programs since 1996, despite the lack of federal funding. The authors conducted a survey of these five new SBI programs. The authors conclude that starting new SBI programs is a viable means of offering students hands-on business experience despite the lack of federal funding.
