The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses (10KSB) programme provides high-quality, practical education specifically tailored to the needs of UK small business leaders. Participants will receive 100 hours of teaching designed by leading experts and delivered through online and residential sessions, led by the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, together with Aston University, University of Leeds and Manchester Metropolitan University. The programme is fully funded for successful applicants.
Additionally, participants gain exposure to a national network of professional experts through business coaching and one-to-one advising. Graduates will also join a highly active and unique national network of small businesses who provide ongoing peer support to one another and frequently establish B2B trading.
Stephen Ware of MM & JE Ware & Son in Hereford, a 10KSB Programme Graduate in 2016, said: "The 10KSB programme has been invaluable in balancing our approach to the farming business - we are now not only in the business of growing, we’re also growing the business".
