The best way to grow your business – support, learning, training and business education


Experts say that the best way to grow your business is through access to a combination of education and business support services. 10,000 Small Businesses, delivered in London by UCL with world-class experts in entrepreneurial learning, provides its participants with just that.

A fully-funded programme that helps take established small businesses and social enterprises to the next level, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme builds on the economic and job creation potential of the UK’s most promising small businesses and social enterprises. Its goal is to give them all the tools and resources they need to lay the foundations for long-term, sustainable growth, and create jobs for their local communities.

The programme has seen outstanding results from previous participants after graduating from the programme:

  • 66% of cohorts have seen an increase in revenue (vs. 35% of UK Small Businesses)
  • 77% of programme graduates have hired more staff (vs. 24% of UK Small Businesses)
  • 83% of participants have introduced new internal processes

"As a direct result of the programme, I’m now more focused, I have great network of people and as I really feel that it has helped to guarantee the future of my business - as much as it can do!”
