Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is an investment to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing greater access to education, capital and business support services. 10,000 Small Businesses is funded by Goldman Sachs and the Goldman Sachs Foundation. Slavitt said he is “very excited to be part of such a prestigious program and looks forward to bringing some great ideas to Mobül.”
Small businesses have generated 64 percent of net new jobs over the past 15 years. Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is designed to tap into that economic power by providing entrepreneurs across the country with the resources they need to grow and create jobs.
The program is currently operating in Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia and Salt Lake City. It will continue to expand on a city-by-city basis.
