Jim Mayne - Deerwood TechnologiesDeerwood Technologies Completes Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Intensive Entrepreneurship Training at Babson College

National program helps entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity

Along with 137 entrepreneurs from 34 states, Deerwood Technologies’ president Jim Mayne graduated from the Babson Cohort of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, on May 21, 2016. The program was developed to create jobs and economic opportunity by providing entrepreneurs greater access to education, capital, and business support services.

“The program is designed to be highly participative, focusing on peer and experiential types of learning - just Babson’s style,” said Babson Professor Patricia Greene, National Academic Director of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses and 10,000 Women. “Babson is proud to see these business owners applying what they have learned to take their next steps in growing their revenues, creating jobs, and supporting our economy.”

Babson has been partnering with Goldman Sachs and others on the 10,000 Small Businesses program since 2010. The program is designed to nurture business growth, and the businesses of the owners who participate are at least two years old with at least four employees. The small businesses in this group represent a total of $240M in revenues and over 3,000 jobs from a broad range of industries.

“The education and tools we received will benefit our company in the years ahead as we continue to grow,” Mayne said. “During the program, we were able to fully develop our strategy and plan to expand our Public Sector customer base, focusing specifically on federal agencies and their prime contractors.”
Starting in March, for 11 weeks, these small business owners connected with peers and worked together through practical business education delivered through a blend of online and face-to-face, in-person sessions.

10,000 Small Businesses offers qualified business owners:

  • Guidance in creating a customized growth plan that includes opportunity identification and feasibility analysis, financial management, leadership, negotiations, and marketing.
  • One-on-one business counseling and a network of peer support from other small business owners, as well as leaders in the business world.

About Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses

Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is based on the broadly held view of leading experts that greater access to this combination of education, capital and support services best addresses barriers to growth for small businesses. 10,000 Small Businesses is guided by an Advisory Council on which Babson President Kerry Healey serves and is co-chaired by Goldman Sachs chairman and CEO Lloyd C. Blankfein, Bloomberg L.P. founder, president and CEO, and 108th Mayor of the City of New York Michael R. Bloomberg, Berkshire Hathaway chairman and CEO Warren Buffett, and the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City’s Dr. Michael Porter. The National Urban League and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce are also represented on the Advisory Council, among other groups.

Deerwood Technologies provides redundant wireless to metro hospitals with use of Nextera’s WiMax technology.

Within a healthcare enterprise, each department has its own specialized needs, and hospital professionals — physicians, nurses, lab pathologists, X-ray technicians, respiratory therapists, and administrators — also have their specific requirements, work environment and preferred tools.  To maximize the effectiveness of a wireless system, it is critical to build a reliable multipurpose infrastructure that includes full redundancy. By partnering with Nextera we can provide their secure wireless solution to our metro hospitals and clinics. Not only are we helping our clients meet compliance needs but also providing them with the peace of mind knowing that should their wireless network infrastructure need to become their primary network, patient flow and care will not be affected.

Deerwood Technologies Projects Growth and Expansion

Deerwood Technologies has purchased the historic former "Deerwood Supermarket" located at 21301 Archibald Road, Deerwood, Minnesota to support their rapid growth and additional full-time staff.

Deerwood Technologies has occupied a portion of the building since 2007. In less than four years, they've grown to their present complement of eight full-time employees. With continued growth forecast they have plans to add three additional professional full-time employees in the near future. By 2015, they project a total of 15-20 full-time employees in a variety of technical, engineering, consulting, service delivery, sales/marketing, and general business roles.

With existing and potential employees already rooted in the area, many of their prospective hires view relocating families here as an attractive benefit. Consequently, purchasing the landmark building was an easy choice.
