Catalog of Information Materials for MSMEs

Micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) obtain valuable information from various sources and in varied forms. While databases and information materials have already been developed by government agencies, business organizations, and the academe, these may not be readily obtainable. There could be several reasons for the inaccessibility of these information, one of which is the lack of materials or facilities that will help MSMEs, researchers, as well as policymakers find these information.

 This “Catalog of Information Materials for MSMEs” hopes to provide entrepreneurs, researchers, and policy-makers with a compendium of information materials that can be used as guides in addressing their various needs. The information materials are presented according to their use: start-up tools, marketing, technology/production, human resource, finance, studies, and information services. Relevant websites are also listed.
