Boosting the local economy...
A new report produced following the work undertaken at Leeds University Business School examining the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Programme reveals how small businesses could be the key to getting the UK economy back on its feet.
To find out more read the Stimulating Small Business Growth report.
10,000 Small Businesses is designed to unlock the economic and job creation potential of small businesses and social enterprises operating in the United Kingdom.
10,000 Small Businesses is for leaders of established small businesses and social enterprises, who will benefit from targeted support and resources to help them define and achieve their business growth aspirations.
The programme is based on the broadly held view of leading experts that greater access to a combination of education and business support services best addresses barriers to growth.
10,000 Small Businesses is targeted at small businesses and social enterprises with clear ambitions to expand. The goal of the programme is to provide participants with tools and resources to help them lay the foundation for long-term sustainable growth and job creation in their communities.
10,000 Small Businesses is funded by the Goldman Sachs Foundation.
Participants will receive approx 100 hours of high quality, practically-focused business and management curriculum which is delivered over 12 sessions at Leeds.
