Goldman Sachs Expands Small Business Program Following Success at Tri-C
10,000 Small Businesses will now be offered in Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton
The success of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses (10KSB) program at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) led the investment bank to spread the economic development program to three other Ohio cities.
10KSB will now be offered at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, Columbus State Community College and Sinclair Community College in Dayton. Goldman Sachs will formally announce the expansion today.
The program made its Ohio debut at Tri-C in 2012 to provide small business owners with the tools needed to take their companies to the next level.
The results speak for themselves.
Reports show that program graduates across the country see their businesses far exceed national averages in revenue growth and job creation. Positive results usually occur within six months.
“The support we’ve received from the community in Cleveland has made expanding statewide in Ohio a clear imperative,” said John Waldron, president and chief operating officer of Goldman Sachs, told the Dayton Business Journal. “We are excited to help drive the same success across Ohio as we look to boost the workforce and support economic progress across the state.”
Goldman Sachs has brought the program to 17 sites across the country. More than 8,200 small businesses - including nearly 700 through the 10KSB program at Tri-C - have benefited.
