Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is a $500 million investment to help small businesses or entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing them with greater access to business education, financial capital, and business support services.
The program is based on the broadly held view of leading experts that greater access to this combination of education, capital and support services best addresses barriers to growth. 10,000 Small Businesses is funded by Goldman Sachs and The Goldman Sachs Foundation.
The program is currently operating in Chicago, Cleveland, Houston, Long Beach, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Miami, and Detroit. It will continue to expand on a city-by-city basis.
With the launch of 10,000 Small Businesses at Babson College recently, business owners from all 50 states now have the opportunity to participate together in a national class. This unique program is delivered through a blend of online and in-person sessions.
If accepted, the program tuition will be at no cost to applicants. In addition, participating business owners will have the option to have the majority of reasonable travel and lodging costs covered to/from Babson College in Massachusetts for the two, four-day, on campus sessions.
