Photomation Vice President, Matt Hesketh, recently graduated the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Initiative program (10KSB) at Long Beach City College (LBCC). The three month long program is designed to help small businesses grow their business and increase their staff.

Scholars submit sales revenue and staffing levels at the beginning of the program, at graduation and at 6 months, 18 months and 30 months after graduation. The effectiveness of the 10KSB Initiative is measured by increases in revenue and staffing levels.

During the intense, thirteen week long program, session topics include; Leadership, Financials, HR, Legal, Negotiations, Sales and Marketing, Operations, Risk and Growth Opportunities. Classes were held on Fridays and Saturdays with occasional mid-week workshops.

The program has nine locations across the United States and is completely funded by scholarships established by Goldman Sachs. Matt graduated in the sixth class, also known as Cohort 6, from LBCC. Nationwide, there are currently around 1500 alumni of the 10KSB program.

Going Uptown in Downtown

KnowledgeByte Main Image

The City of Long Beach called upon their Photomation Account Manager, Mike Mertz to discuss design ideas of updating their renovated permit department. Mike suggested using old and new images in and around the city to help create interest and brighten the area with colorful images. He worked closely with our digital artists to drop images into photos taken of the office area as concepts.

The clients were thrilled with ideas of combining framed historical images sourced from Historical Society of Long Beach and contemporary photographic images as permanent wallcovering. After several rounds of proofs using different images the clients made their choices.

We framed historical images using black and white mats and silver molding to accent the office decor. Several images were printed on Terra Decorus™, our recycled, earth-friendly wallcovering product. Our professional staff delivered and installed the products and met their tight deadline.

The new art work was well received. The City of Long Beach staff introduced their streamlined permit department regulations event where mayor Bob Foster explained the ease of doing business in Long Beach. When you need office and work space updated, call the professionals at Photomation.
