2009 Entrepreneurial Development Impact Report

The U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Office of Entrepreneurial Development (ED) designed a multi-year time series study to assess the impact of the programs it offers to small businesses. This study has examined clients who received services starting in FY2003. The SBA initiated this study as part of the process of meeting the then President’s Management Agenda and subsequent evaluative processes such as the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) evaluation. SBA contracted with Concentrance Consulting Group to assist in administering the study, to analyze the findings and to write this report. This report is the sixth report1 in the study and presents the findings of three separate study groups as shown in the table below; the FY2008 clients’ initial attitudinal assessment of their counseling experience, and a follow-up with FY2006 and FY2007 clients to assess the financial impact of the received assistance.
