10,000 Small Businesses UK is delighted to launch a pilot programme exclusively for alumni in collaboration with the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School. The pilot programme is designed in particular to benefit leaders of larger businesses and social enterprises who are managing rapid growth. The intensive modules will build on key content areas from 10,000 Small Businesses UK modules but will focus on critical areas for accelerating and managing business growth including leadership development, finance and sales and marketing. The format is two three-day residential modules at the University of Oxford delivered by small business experts and successful entrepreneurs from across the UK. As an extension of 10,000 Small Businesses UK, it will be practical, customized to participants’ needs and focus on peer to peer learning. In addition to the residential workshops, the pilot programme includes mentoring and networking opportunities.
