Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses (10KSB) is a program for small businesses that links learning to action. Through the program, participants gain practical skills in topics such as negotiation, marketing, and employee management that can immediately be put into action. Participants receive the tools and professional support to develop a strategic and customized growth plan that will take their business to the next level. A $500 million investment was made to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing them with greater access to education, financial capital, and business support services. The 10KSB program currently operates in 30 markets in the U.S. through a network of more than 100 academic and community partners, and the program continues to expand on a city-by-city basis. In 2017, the first Maryland program site started in Baltimore with Johns Hopkins University as the host. This is a five-year, $10 million commitment to Baltimore, in partnership with Goldman Sachs and Bloomberg Philanthropies.
