New Project’s Dennis Potami Graduates from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program
We are excited to announce that New Project’s co-founder and co-CEO, Dennis Potami, has recently graduated from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Initiative! In October 2014, Dennis was one of 28 small business owners throughout the New York tri-state area selected to participate in the 13th cohort of the prestigious business leadership program.
In the United States, the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program is a $500 million investment to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing them with greater access to education, financial capital, and business support services. Over the last sixteen weeks, advisors have helped Dennis and his classmates identify potential business growth opportunities and have provided them with the framework and training to assist in reaching those goals. The intensive program allowed Dennis to work one-on-one with dedicated professionals to develop a strategic and tailored growth plan for New Project.
Dennis had the following to say about his participation and graduation from the Goldman Sachs program:
“Being a small business owner can sometimes feel like you are on an island of your own. The Goldman Sachs program provides an invaluable opportunity to be a part of a network of committed professionals. I feel honored to have been selected to participate in this program where I have learned targeted strategies to help grow our business.“
After sixteen weeks of intense training, New Project has entered the alumni ranks of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Initiative!
Great Job, Dennis!!
