Our very own President and CEO, Shad Mohammed, was invited to a collaborative graduation for the Tory Burch Foundation and Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program in April 2013. The program and graduation exposed students to the the life of empowering women in the fashion world.
The partnership of the Tory Burch Foundation and Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program encourages women to look beyond their daily work demands and to focus on their business as a whole instead.
This graduation allowed peer-to-peer networking as well as one-on-one advice from professionals to potential small-business owners and connected them based on their specific needs. It is important to understand how vital small businesses are for job growth in our country and economy today. With more businesses launched, more jobs become available to help drive our economy forward.
As the graduation closes the pilot program for this collaborative class of female entrepreneurs, both Tory and the Goldman Sachs team hope to offer the program to a new group of women in the future and hopefully, expand to other parts of the country as well.
