The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme delivered in London by world class UCL, is a fantastic opportunity which provides fully funded development and support for small businesses and social enterprises.
UCL and Goldman Sachs have just announced its sixth cohort for the programme which is at no cost to the delegates. It is designed to help dynamic, high potential businesses develop a plan for growth with 92% of participants reporting more confidence in how to grow their business.
The stats speak for themselves:
- 66% of cohorts have seen an increase in revenue over the last 12 months
- 77% of programme graduates have hired more staff during the past year compared with 24% for the average SME
- 83% of participants have introduced new internal processes
The participants speak for themselves:
We’ve had some great feedback from current and past cohorts about the programme:
“Best programme I have ever done – money couldn’t buy what I have learnt!”
“I really feel that the programme has helped to guarantee the future of my business – as much as it can do!”
“With 10,000 Small Businesses, every time I came away, I did so with ideas that radically changed the way I did things”
Only 25 to 30 companies will be selected and they will work with successful entrepreneurs and academic experts to look at every level of their business. This is an incredible opportunity for ambitious companies looking to expand and grow.
The core of the programme is a high quality, practically-focused business and management education, delivered over twelve core modules lasting approximately 100 hours.
