Practical Business Education
Designed by Babson College, the nation’s top-ranked entrepreneurship school, the 10,000 Small Businesses curriculum focuses on practical business skills that can immediately be applied by small business owners, including negotiation, marketing, and employee management.
The 10,000 Small Businesses program shows small business owners how to become more bankable and position themselves to access small business funding and capital. Through partnerships with local, regional and national Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) and other mission-driven small business lenders (Capital Partners), loans are available to qualifying small businesses that lack access to affordable capital or may not qualify for traditional sources of credit.
