The Institute for Small-Scale Industries (UP ISSI) was established in 1969 under the umbrella of the country’s National University, the University of the Philippines, with the enactment of Republic Act 6041.

UP ISSI pioneered in stimulating, promoting, and developing the small-scale industry sector. Being the forerunner in enterprise development, the Institute designed and implemented entrepreneurship, management consultancy, regional industrial development training programs and low-cost automation courses. Along with its training efforts, UP ISSI engaged in small industry research and industrial consultancy activities for small businesses and industry groups.

Through the years, UP ISSI has always been on the lookout for growth gaps in the micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) sector and filling these with innovative training, research, and consultancy activities. For more than four decades now, the UP ISSI continues to perform its role as a steadfast advocate and ally of the SME sector.
