Tri-C, Goldman Sachs Continue Successful Partnership on 10,000 Small Businesses
Results of program bring it back for seventh year in Cleveland
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) recently announced a continuation of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses to create more jobs and economic opportunity in Northeast Ohio.
The announcement — made at the Tri-C Foundation’s Presidential Scholarship Luncheon — builds on the longstanding and successful partnership between the College and Goldman Sachs.
Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses debuted at Tri-C in 2012. The program runs as part of a national network designed to unlock the growth and job creation potential of small businesses.
“Our economy hinges on the success of small-business owners,” said Alex Johnson, president of Tri-C. “The continuation of this partnership with Goldman Sachs positions 10,000 Small Businesses to make an ever-greater impact on building a prosperous future in Northeast Ohio.”
The 10,000 Small Businesses alumni list at Tri-C exceeds 600. Statistics show the impact of the program, as graduates consistently grow revenues and create jobs at rates that outperform the broader economy.
Entrepreneurs in Tri-C’s 10,000 Small Businesses program represent a variety of industries and businesses. Each spends 13 weeks studying a business and management curriculum designed by Babson College, a top-ranked school for entrepreneurial education.
The program provides small-business owners with greater access to training, one-on-one advising, networking and financial capital needed to power success.
The Goldman Sachs announcement added another highlight to the Presidential Scholarship Luncheon, which featured former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates as keynote speaker.
