I built the business, now I want to take it to the next level and I think the 10ksb experience will get us there!” said VPC President and 10ksb participant, Deepa Srinivasan.

Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is a program for small businesses that links learning to action. Throughout the 12 week program, VPC will gain practical skills in topics such as negotiation, marketing, strategic growth, and employee management that we can immediately put into action. We will also receive the tools and professional support to develop a strategic and customized growth plan that will be geared to grow our businesses. The program offers modules, workshops, and clinics as well as additional outside of class activities and bridge work. These activities are targeted to directly working on our business, as well as participating in business support services offerings and clinics.
“We have such a diverse group of Goldman Scholars that I’m looking forward to learning from my peers just as much as from the program. It’s going to be a busy Spring!” says Deepa, excitedly.
