Title: Entrepreneurial Development Customer Intake Form & Training Report Form.

Abstract: SBA Forms 641 (Client Intake Form) and 888 (Training Form) are used to collect counseling, training and economic impact information from SBA Resource Partners and contractors that deliver business technical assistance.
