Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Fellows is connecting small businesses and historically underrepresented college students through paid, semester-long internships.
In Fall 2021, Goldman Sachs piloted 10,000 Small Businesses Fellows as an innovative internship experience. It is supporting small businesses in reaching their business goals and investing in the professional growth of local talent. The early findings have been overwhelmingly positive and affirm the case for continued ways to connect small businesses to resources and new talent pipelines.Read the Report
“Investing in the future workforce means taking action today. 10,000 Small Businesses Fellows - which brings community college students and entrepreneurs together in high-impact internships - is our investment in that future.”
Asahi Pompey, President, Goldman Sachs Foundation
Small businesses have long expressed the need for workers with the fundamental skills to fuel growth, but often find difficulties building the workforce pipelines to recruit those workers.
At the same time, many college students express a lack of accessibility to real-world experience to navigate professional careers, even as they finish their academic experiences.
Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Fellows is about bringing together these students and small businesses to solve educational and workforce needs.
As an extension of the existing 10,000 Small Businesses program — which provides educational and capital support to small business owners — this new focus on workforce needs ensures durable growth into the future.
