Breaking Barriers: Goldman Sachs and Finance Savvy CEO Join Forces to Support Black Women Sole Proprietors

Black women entrepreneurs face unique challenges when starting and growing their businesses, from accessing capital to overcoming systemic barriers. But now, there’s hope on the horizon, with Goldman Sachs’ groundbreaking initiative: One Million Black Women: Black in Business program. The applications for the Fall Cohort of Goldman Sachs’ One Million Black Women: Black in Business program are now open. The FREE business education program is dedicated to reaching Black women entrepreneurs with the tools necessary to turn their business potential into business growth.

The goal of this program is that graduates walk away with knowledge on how to price their product or service, hire their first employee, understand their finances, and so much more.

The program is designed specifically for Black women sole proprietors with a minimum of $25,000 in revenue over the past twelve months and who have been operating within the US for at least one year.

The program will provide:

  • A free 10-week business education program with online and in-person programming
  • $2,000 program stipend
  • All-expense paid trips to Goldman Sachs in NYC
  • Business advisors and mentors to guide your growth path
  • A powerful network of Black women entrepreneurs

Aside from the learning, tools, and experience that a Black woman small business owner gets, she will also receive a SOLID and LASTING COMMUNITY of Black Women in business. This alone is very precious because a single business owner cannot make it on their own, but she can do so much with everyone else who genuinely supports her!
