CEO Mendizabal Graduates from Goldman Sachs Program

Nancy Mendizabal

Nancy Mendizabal, co-owner and agency principal of Apple Valley Insurance, recently graduated from Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, an intensive entrepreneurship training program held at Babson College in Waltham, Mass.

The Goldman Sachs Program

She was among 137 entrepreneurs out of over 700 selected from 34 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico who completed the program. The 11-week program helps small business owners create jobs and economic opportunity by providing greater access to education, capital and business support services. Through a combination of online and in- person sessions, Nancy received intensive entrepreneurship and practical training from Babson’s business experts and peers, alongside educational teams who teach the 10,000 Small Businesses program at colleges across the U.S.

Apple Valley Insurance

“While Apple Valley Insurance has been a strong Rhode Island business for two generations and over 50 years, we are always interested in finding ways of working smarter and more efficiently. The 10,000 Small Businesses program gave me valuable insight and knowledge that I have shared with our team, and we are excited about the positive effect it will have on our agency and customers,” Nancy states.
