In February last year we applied to participate in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Programme, described by Goldman Sachs as 'an investment to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing greater access to education, capital and business support services' Out of nearly 5,000 applicants we were selected along with 70 other business to participate.
Across the 13 week programme we as a business created a strong growth plan to build and develop the Robert Carters brand in the UK. With the aim to create more jobs in the local area and provide first class products to our customers for the right prices.
On the 11th December 2017 James Carter from our organisation travelled down to Oxford University to receive the businesses certificate of completion which was presented in the Sheldonian Theatre.
It’s been a huge honour for us to take part in this programme, we've forged some fantastic ties with like-minded businesses throughout the UK.
The plan is well underway stay tuned for more updates.
