Learn how to maximize your business potential with the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program

Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses provides business education, support services and pathways to capital for business owners looking to grow their business.

Key highlights of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses:

  • The program is offered at no cost to the business owner - every business owner selected receives a full scholarship funded by the Goldman Sachs Foundation
  • Within 6 months of graduating 67% of scholars reported increasing revenues and 47% added new jobs
  • Participants create a unique, customized 5-year growth plan that can be implemented immediately

“We were so appreciative of Sharon Peterson from 10KSB coming to speak to the Executives Association of Long Beach.  As several of our members had benefitted from this competitive business growth program, we invited them to come speak to our group to offer our members the opportunity to apply.  For our growth oriented members this is a big value, as acceptance into the program includes its flagship multi-week intensive growth opportunity program (often described as a mini MBA), peer support from other business owners in their cohort and from the program in general, continued seminars and programs, and ongoing business support for ALL endeavors of its alumni.  To add to that value, all accepted businesses pay nothing for this opportunity.”
