Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses

Applications are also accepted on a rolling basis for the next available cohort. Visit for current schedules.

Business owners with limited resources poised for growth can expect to receive, at no cost, a practical, intensive business education where the coursework can be applied directly after each session. The program can also provide participants access to financial capital, powerful networking opportunities, and more. 


Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to growing their business and creating jobs within their community. Business owners eligible to apply for the program should generally have been in business for two years or more, have at least four employees, and a revenue stream of $150,000 to $4 million per year.
