Happy Friday! I'm finally back in the office after back to back travel and a nasty virus in between! I had the amazing opportunity a few weeks back to attend the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Alumni Summit down in DC. It was jam-packed with entrepreneurial superstars like Richard Branson, Tyler Perry and Warren Buffet alongside legislators like Bloomberg, Rubio and Scott.
Emily Morgan Completes the 10,000 Small Businesses-Greater Philadelphia Program
PHILADELPHIA, April 29, 2014
The business owners have spent 12 weeks - roughly 100 class hours - at the Main Campus of Community College of Philadelphia actively engaged in an entrepreneurial business curriculum designed by Babson College and delivered by the community college faculty. The curriculum covered all elements of running one’s business, from money and metrics to marketing and sales. The program also included one-on-one business advising, financial statement workshops and advice from top law firms and Goldman Sachs professionals.
Applications for 10,000 Small Businesses are accepted on a rolling basis at Community College of Philadelphia, with June 9, 2014 as the deadline to apply for the next cohort. The program is open to business owners from across the Greater Philadelphia region. Applications may be downloaded at www.ccp.edu/10KSB.
