The Harold Price Center for Entrepreneurial Studies established the Center for Research in Entrepreneurship, Business Development, and Innovation (CREBDI), to organize conferences and disseminate information based on the latest management research.

CREBDI develops and executes academic conferences, research papers, and oral histories. Four of these efforts are the Galef Symposium in Entrepreneurship and Business Development, the Steinbeck Symposium for the Study of Family-Owned Businesses, Entrepreneurs of the West: An Oral History Program, and the Family and Closely Held Business Program.
