Aston University recruits for sixth cohort of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme.
Aston University has announced the recruitment for the sixth cohort of small business and social enterprise leaders for the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme in the Midlands.
Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is an innovative fully funded programme designed to unlock the economic and job creation potential of small businesses and social enterprises from across the Midlands. The Programme is delivered by Aston Business School in partnership with the Goldman Sachs Foundation and it is targeted at business owners who have clear ambitions to expand their small businesses or social enterprises.
The aim of the programme is to provide participants with practical tools and resources to help them lay the foundation for long term sustainable growth and job creation in their businesses. This support includes attendance of twelve high quality, practically-focussed business and management education modules, delivered by Aston Business School, plus a range of other tailor-made support services including specialist workshops and one to one business advice. Through the on-going success of the programme, we are proud to be developing a growth orientated network of influential business leaders across the Midlands.
To date a total of 109 business leaders have already completed the Programme, with a fifth cohort of thirty businesses currently on the programme. Aston Business School is now seeking up to thirty business owners to apply for the next cohort, which is due to start in March 2014. The deadline for applications is 12 December (noon), 2013.
