Recruitment underway for third cohort of the Goldman Sachs Program

Student News | Monday, May 10, 2021

Columbus State’s Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program will host the third cohort of local area small business owners this September. To enroll new students, recruitment for local area entrepreneurs is now underway.  

We are seeking small business owners who demonstrate both passion and commitment to growing their business and creating jobs in our community.  

The eligibility requirements are as follows:

  • Owner or co-owner of a business
  • Business in operation for at least 2 years
  • Revenues of at least $75,000 in the most recent fiscal year
  • Minimum of 2 employees (including the owner)

The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program was created with the primary goal to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunities in their communities by providing them access to education, capital, and the business support services necessary to make that happen. Program tuition is offered at no cost to the business owner, and accepted applicants receive hands-on education for business growth, access to highly-trained professionals who understand what it takes to grow a small business, and an expanded peer network of small business owners from across the country.

To learn more about the program, register for an information session, or apply, visit our website.

For questions, or to refer a small business owner to our program, please reach out to Stephanie Hall, Grants Office manager, at
