The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Initiative is an investment to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing greater access to education, capital, and business support services. The education portion of the program is currently delivered in nine cities across the country, and is expanding with the launch of 10,000 Small Businesses at Babson College, the country’s top entrepreneurial school, with locations in San Francisco, Boston and Wellesley, Mass.
The expansion of the program may mean free tuition and/or travel expenses. The reason for the urgency is that the application deadline is Oct. 18. If your company is growth-ready, has at least $250,000 in revenue and employees who have aspirations to be much bigger, you should check this out!
To apply, go to http://www.icic.org/10ksbapply. Applications are being handled by the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC). According to the ICIC website, “After you have submitted your application, you will receive an e-mail confirming its receipt. If accepted, the program tuition will be at no cost to you. 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.”
