Program Experience: “10KSB literally saved my business! While I have a passion for creating green buildings, I did not have detailed business acumen. 10KSB helped me carve out time to work ON the business and improve my skills in areas like, financials, marketing, processes, and human resources. We made the leap from 1099 team to W-2 employer. The Growth Plan we created has served as a map that we have followed and the business has grown substantially! When you get to the end of what you know and you need to grow your business skills, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program. The friends made, knowledge, and resources, make all the difference! “
