Sinclair College is celebrating the second graduating class of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses (10KSB) Program. 20 Dayton-area entrepreneurs have successfully completed the vigorous 14-week virtual program.
The 20 graduates from across the region represent multiple industries including healthcare, information technology, body care, real estate, remodeling, marketing, pest control, construction, mentoring, insurance, and transportation.
“Entrepreneurs and small business owners play a vital role in growing jobs and the local economy. This innovative partnership between Sinclair College and Goldman Sachs provides practical strategies, along with an arsenal of resources, tools, and ideas, for participants,” said Kandise Bobo, Program Manager – Sinclair Workforce Development.
Program participants receive one-on-one business advising and learn alongside peers from a variety of industries. Graduates leave the program with a specific 5-year growth plan tailored to their business and is immediately implementable.
The program is offered at no cost to selected business owners who receive a full scholarship funded by the Goldman Sachs Foundation.
According to the Goldman Sachs Foundation, 67% of the program’s alumni reported increased revenues and 47% added new jobs within six months of graduating.
