Clarendon's Eve Moss honored by Goldman Sachs program
Eve Moss, of Clarendon, was honored by Goldman Sachs and Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) of Cleveland recently, for excellence in completing their top-rated business leadership program.
Ms. Moss was among 31 northeast Ohio small business owners selected for excellence and business acumen, who recently completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program. To be accepted into the program, participants must demonstrate a commitment to growing their businesses and creating jobs within their community.
“I feel extremely blessed to have been chosen by Goldman Sachs and Tri=C as one of the top-tier small business owners in our market – and to participate in an exclusive and intensive immersion business training program. I look forward to growing my business, creating more jobs, and contributing to our country’s economy,” said Moss.
The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is a $500 million initiative to unlock the growth and job creation potential of small businesses across the United States by providing them with greater access to business education, financial capital and business support services.
The 14-week intensive immersion program includes business and management curriculum designed by Babson College of Boston, a top-ranked school for entrepreneurial education. Interacting with program faculty and business owners in her cohort, the program covered topics ranging from business owner leadership to business exit strategies. Moss and the other small business owners were required to develop and present detailed business growth and marketing plans to program instructors, and to each other. The program also includes one-on-one business advising, accounting workshops and advice from Goldman Sachs professionals.
“It was such a great opportunity to have met such an extraordinary group of business owners with shared interests and goals, and I’m proud to be an alumni of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program,” said Moss
Following the program’s completion, coordinators will follow-up with the business owners at regular 6-month, 18-month and 30-month intervals, to measure graduates’ progress and chronicle their anticipated successes.
Northeast Ohio entrepreneurs who completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program outperformed the broader economy while exceeding national averages in revenue growth and job creation. Nearly two of three participants in the 10,000 Small Businesses program at Tri-C reported increased revenue at their companies in the first six months after graduation, and more than 40 percent hired more employees. By comparison, less than half of small-business owners nationally saw revenue growth while only 22 percent added jobs, according to a survey by the National Small Businesses Association.
The results at Tri-C mirror those detailed in a study released by Babson College. The report “Stimulating Small Business Growth: Progress Report on Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses” details the progress of the thousands of entrepreneurs who have completed the program.
