Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is a program designed by Babson College, the nation's top-ranked entrepreneurship school, for established small businesses that have left the start-up phase and have entered the growth phase. The program is currently active in eighteen cities around the United States, has already trained 4,000+ small businesses, and has been active in Detroit since Spring 2014 in partnership with Wayne State University, Oakland Community College, Macomb Community College, Invest Detroit Foundation, and Detroit Development Fund.
As one of thirty-six small businesses accepted to participate in cohort 4 I'm excited to learn alongside fellow local business owners and scholars over the next few months. Detroit and Southeast Michigan is home to nearly 42,000 small businesses according to the U.S. Census Bureau and this is an opportunity for Commercial Progression to continue to grow and stand-out as a leader doing things better for our clients. The opportunity to utilize our new relationships with local businesses, educators, business advisers, and funding partners to deliver more services to more clients is thrilling.
