Insight On Business the News Hour

The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program Now an Iowa Opportunity

For several years the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program was national. Meaning that attendees would have to travel to the East Coast to take advantage of the education. This year it's much different. Goldman Sachs saw the value in taking the program statewide. So, what that means is the education takes place here, in Iowa. Meet Joey Beech who is responsible for marketing the effort across the Hawkeye State. We'll talk about the guts of the program, how to register and how the Des Moines Area Community College is involved. Strap in...and learn!

Michelle DeClerck a Graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Project

How can a small business grow? Usually by working on the business rather than in it. However, so many times small business owners don't have the time or the money to invest in a program that teaches how to become better. That is where the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Project comes in. Meet Michelle DeClerck a graduate of the program. She'll share with you how it changed her business, Conference Event Management, her life and...the folks who work with her.
