SUMMARY

A 10,000 Small Businesses Faculty Team Member is one who brings appropriate academic and practitioner oriented expertise to the classroom, is committed to a teaching approach that is theory based, disciplinary integrated, and experientially focused, is an innovative and collaborative teacher, uses a model of community engagement, and is dedicated to the program outcomes of job creation and revenue generation.

Program & Curriculum

The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is part of a national five-year investment to unlock the growth and job creation potential of small businesses, and is based on the broadly held view of leading experts that a combination of education, support services, and access to capital best addresses the barriers to growth for small businesses.

The educational component of the national 10,000 Small Businesses is delivered through community college partners. The financing component is provided through partnerships with local Community Development Financial Institutions ("CDFIs") with knowledge of small businesses and a strong record of performance. These CDFIs will provide loans to qualified businesses with limited access to traditional sources of capital. Both the educational partners and the CDFI partners will provide business support services such as technical assistance.

The 10,000 Small Businesses program is comprised of three main components: business education, business support services (technical assistance and customized, one-on-one business advice) and the opportunity to access capital. The ultimate goal of the program is for the participating business owners to increase their revenues and create jobs in their hometown and surrounding areas. Through the support of the Goldman Sachs Foundation, each business owner that is selected to participate in the program will receive a scholarship to cover tuition and program materials.
