Sinclair College Extends Application Deadline for Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program

Sinclair Community College is extending the application deadline for its Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses (10KSB) Program to February 12, 2021.  

This unique partnership between Sinclair College and Goldman Sachs promotes job creation and growth opportunities for local entrepreneurs and small businesses by providing access to business education, capital and support services.  The 15-week virtual program is offered at no cost to selected business owners who receive a full scholarship funded by the Goldman Sachs Foundation.

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.

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.

The program looks for applicants who are passionate about growing their business and creating jobs in their communities, and generally meet these criteria:

• Owner or co-owner of a business

• Business in operation for at least two years
