Grow Your Small Business
Now Accepting Applications
At LaGuardia Community College we imagine new ideas and pioneer new programs to help make our community stronger. Our drive to experiment, combined with our belief in the transformative power of education, has led us to a fulfilling partnership with the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses initiative to help small businesses in the greater New York metropolitan area to grow and create jobs.
Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses at LaGuardia Community College is a practical business management education program that helps you develop the skills you need to grow your company. You will receive a series of 11 learning sessions, business support services and one-on-one business advising from dedicated professionals to help develop a tailored plan for growth. At LaGuardia, we will give you an opportunity to explore and experiment – an environment in which you can discover the most efficient path to achieving your business goals.
Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is a $500 million national program designed to help small businesses in the United States create jobs and economic growth by providing entrepreneurs with a practical business education, access to capital and business support services. The program is based on the broadly held view of leading experts that greater access to this combination of services best addresses barriers to growth.
Applications at LaGuardia Community College are due on the 15th of every month at 5pm. After you have submitted your application, you will receive an email confirming its receipt, and advising you of the upcoming class for which you are being considered. We are currently accepting applications for the next Class which begins Friday, February 22, 2013.
Through the support of the Goldman Sachs Foundation, business owners selected to participate in 10,000 Small Businesses will receive a scholarship covering program tuition and materials.
