Small Business School roots go back to 1994


The founders of Small Business School started in 1994 with a production called, Small Business Today.  It aired on PBS stations for just  four seasons.  The series was re-branded as Small Business 2000  to change from a magazine format to a documentary format.  That series went on for twenty-two seasons.  The series was once again re-branded in the year 2000 and Small Business School launched on January 1,  2000. 

Small Business School has been growing up and now we believe it is time for this series to leave the nest!

All three shows have been produced by Flying Leap. Bruce Camber and Hattie Bryant are the founders of Flying Leap (and also husband and wife).

All three shows have been not-for-profit associations of people and businesses who support and encourage the growth of small business in the USA and throughout the world.

The infrastructure of the web site and the web design is the work of Graphtek in Palm Desert, California. The user interface for the content development is their own Content Management System. 

Our syndicator, the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA), is located in Columbia, South Carolina. NETA broadcasts about 2000 times per year to all public television stations. Fifty-two of these broadcasts are episodes of Small Business School.
