The people profiled in the video above are all successful small business owners. However, when they were first starting out, they didn’t necessarily know how to turn their unique ideas into reality—or what to do to help their businesses flourish.
That’s when these entrepreneurs turned to Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses. This free business management education program helps participants develop the practical skills needed to grow their companies, via a practical, easily applicable course curriculum.
In addition to business education, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses provides greater access to financial capital and business support services, along with access to peer learning, networking events and one-on-one advising sessions from dedicated professionals.
The inaugural Cleveland session of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program is now accepting applications, but only until Monday, July 2—so be sure to apply today!
Business owners eligible to apply for the program generally have been in business for two years or more and typically have at least four employees and a revenue stream of $150,000 to $4 million per year. The 11-session course begins at Cuyahoga Community College in September 2012.
There is only one information session being held at Tri-C left; to find out more, click here.
