LCMB were invited to open the London Stock Exchange this Monday 10th October 2016 with other Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses UK alumni to hear from the London Stock Exchange what support is available for UK small businesses at a key time in unlocking the next stage of their growth.
LCMB completed the 10,000 Small Businesses UK programme at Aston University in 2015. 10KSB UK is a comprehensive programme of business development and leadership support for small businesses with high growth potential, designed to help them achieve that potential.
Launched in 2010, the programme has to date supported more than 1,000 entrepreneurs across the country. Initially focused on four regional hubs, the programme last year expanded to a national model, expanding its reach and welcoming businesses from across the UK. 10KSB UK is led by Oxford Saïd Business School, with support from Aston University and Leeds University Business School.
The 10KSB UK programme seeks to drive participants’ business growth by encouraging the development and application of key management practices and business strategies within their businesses. Through 10KSB UK, participants identify and execute the steps necessary to enable them to scale their ventures, access capital, create employment and expand to new markets. The goal is for each business to create a business growth plan to guide their business for future growth.
