In the United States, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is a $500 million investment to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunity by providing them with greater access to education, financial capital and business support services.
Small businesses have generated 64 percent of net new jobs over the past 15 years. They represent 99.7 percent of all employer firms, hire 40 percent of high tech workers, and produce 13 times more patents per employee than large patenting firms.
Vanessa Best, comments, “As CEO of Precision Healthcare Consultants, I have seen this consistently, every doctor and medical director has the same dilemma, getting paid faster and having metrics to help them make decisions. We’ve always done a great job, but now with the tools from the Goldman Sachs program….we have enhanced our systems and will by far not only exceed the expectations of our clients but we are positioned to expand to include NYS, NYC & Nassau County Government Procurement opportunities as a MWBE (Minority Women Business Enterprise by Empires State Development & Nassau County Office of Minority Affairs) which will create jobs and provide the needed expertise in the region. “
