Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses has partnered with Salt Lake Community College to provide an advanced education program for small business owners ready to take their business to the next level.
Participants join like-minded entrepreneurs to learn from some of the brightest minds in business. Each receives expert advice, one-on-one business advising and a growth plan written specifically for their business.
Additionally, participants that complete the program are connected to a local and national professional support network at no cost.
The cost of tuition and materials are covered 100% by a scholarship provided by the Goldman Sachs Foundation. The investment required from program participants is limited to time, effort, and providing feedback.
"I think it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. The amount of information that they cover, the depth, the instructors that they bring in - It's just phenomenal! I wish I did it eight years ago... It really forces you to step back and look at your business."
"The program helped me by showing me how to work ON my business instead of IN my business."
"The bookkeeping side of things was huge. I always thought I knew my books, but I started the program and quickly realized I don't know them enough. 10KSB was really valuable."
Graduates from the 10,000 Small Businesses program outperform their peers in growing revenue and creating jobs. The graphics below show how Utah program alumni have performed since completing the program.
