The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme provides high quality, structured and practically focussed support to small business leaders who are seeking to grow their businesses.
Participants learn alongside other ambitious small business owners, and with the support of Aston Business School and a range of experienced practitioners from the business community. At the end of the programme, participants join an active and enthusiastic 10,000 Small Businesses national alumni network consisting of hundreds of the UK's most exciting small businesses.
Originally launched in the United States in 2009 and in the UK in 2010, the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme aims to support the vital role played by small businesses in creating jobs and driving economic growth.
In the UK the programme is now established in Yorkshire, the North West, the Midlands and London. The programme is fully-funded for successful applicants by the Goldman Sachs Foundation.
The recently launched report entitled Stimulating Small Business Growth, highlights the impact the programme is having on small businesses.
