5 Tips for Using Colleges and Universities to Help Your Business

1 – Volunteer your company to be a business school case study. You’ll learn much about your company in the process and get good ideas for the future.

2 – Obtain management and technical assistance from one of more than 50 Small Business Development Centers. Check the U.S. Small Business Administration web site at www.sba.gov for locations.

3 – Participate in special programs. Many colleges and universities sponsor venture capital forums, entrepreneurship centers and family business programs.

4 – Work with the business school to offer internships to graduate students.

5 – Find out what expertise is on a business school’s staff. You may find just the right person to hire as a consultant or serve on your board.
