The goals of the current research are to establish the entrepreneurial interests and self estimated ability for business success of the immigrant population. In the current research four principle hypotheses may be defined. Overall, our goal was to obtain an indication of immigrant business potential and to assess the ability of SBDC ("MATT") to reach and assist target populations, based on an evaluation of MATI operations from the clients' perspective. Accordingly we may describe our general hypothesizes as:

1. Entrepreneurship provides a means of regaining socio-economic status for new immigrants.

2. Immigrants from the former Soviet Union possess significant entrepreneurial capabilities.

Entrepreneurial potential was evaluated according to the subjective information obtained from the new immigrants themselves. Two additional hypothesizes connected with entrepreneurial support system may be described as:

3. New immigrants demand entrepreneurial support.

4. SBDC (MATI) services are suitable for immigrant demands.
