Opportunity to Apply for a Small Business Educational Program at CCRI

Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is a no-cost 12-week program that helps small businesses grow through a practical business education, increased access to capital, and a support network of advisers and peers. This program takes place at the CCRI Knight Campus in Warwick, Rhode Island.

Over 7,000 small business owners have participated nationwide and in the U.K., and the program continues to expand. With a 99% graduation rate, business owner participants are translating the knowledge they gain from the program into increased revenue and job growth — within just six months of graduating, 69% of participants have increased their revenues, and 48% have created new jobs.

The educational curriculum, developed by Babson College, focuses on practical skills that can immediately be applied by business owners — including accounting, negotiating, marketing, human resources management, and much more. Business owners also receive one-on-one mentoring from a dedicated business advisor, and develop a growth plan specific to their business.

Eligible applicants must be the business owner, have at least 2 employees (can include the owner), have been in operation at least 2 years, made at least $100,000 in gross revenue in the most recent fiscal year, and must be located in Rhode Island. Cohort 5 will begin on January 11th 2018 – if you are interested in participating, applications are due September 15th.
