  • Applications deadline and virtual information sessions scheduled for a free business growth program: 10,000 Small Businesses

    MANCHESTER—Applications are being accepted for the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program (at Manchester Community College). The 10,000 Small Businesses program is offered twice per year and is 100% funded through the Goldman Sachs Foundation, a not-for-profit organization.

    • To qualify for the program businesses must meet the following criteria:
    • Been in business for at least two years
    • Grossed 75,000 in previous year
    • Have the equivalent of two full time employees (including the business owner)
    • Have the desire to grow their business
    The program is delivered in a hybrid model and requires only two weeks on site at Manchester Community College. To make this more accessible for businesses from all regions of the state the grant also covers the cost of meals and hotel accommodations for the onsite days that are required.

    Business owners who participate gain the support of experienced faculty and business advisors who will help them strategize and design their business growth plan. After completing the program, business owners also have access to the 10KSB Alumni Program that provides ongoing free education as well as a local (and state-wide) network of like-minded business people.

    We are accepting applications for our Spring 2024 Cohort beginning Sept through November 17th. Applications can be submitted through the website, https://www.10ksbapply.com/newhampshire.
