Bikram Yoga Andersonville, a locally-owned small business at 5715 N Clark Street, got some great news last week. They were accepted in the 10,000 Small Businesses program, a collaborative small business financing and business education program sponsored by Goldman Sachs through a partnership with the City Colleges of Chicago. The program will provided Bikram owner, Jessica Rask, an opportunity to participate in practical business and management education courses at no cost. As part of the program, participants completing the course work are also given the opportunity and tools needed to access program loans. Jessica has expressed excitement about participating in this program and is confident that it will change her business for the better.
Enrollment for the second cohort of 10,000 Small Businesses is still open. If you own or know a business owner that might benefit from this program, learn more and apply by visiting the 10,000 Small Businesses Chicago website.
