This is so so unfair, how would they give only women this great opportunity?
Goldman Sachs is one those giant corporations I personally detest because of the level of selfishness they exhibit in most cases. When these guys got together and told the world, Facebook is worth a $100 billion, I said no way guys! I simply knew that another heist was underway and so far it looks like that but we need to wait longer. Ok, let me not digress, this should be a topic for another day.
The focus of today is that Goldman Sachs in partnership with Pan-African University is training and building capacity in our women and they should be applauded for that irrespective of what their motives are.
Why the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women Scholarship Initiative?
Business owners need to build deeper understanding, skills and knowledge in the environment where they operate to be able to successfully sustain their businesses. Hence, the need for capacity building is an integral part of business development.
Increasing numbers of women are becoming leaders/managers of their own businesses and many are actually still struggling to achieve success. Evidence has shown that when a woman is empowered, she reinvests into her family, her environment and the world at large.
In Nigeria, opportunity has been thrown open to female entrepreneurs to build their capacity through the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women Scholarship Initiative in collaboration with the Pan-African University and over 200 female entrepreneurs have tapped into this great opportunity. Why not join the league of successful female entrepreneurs today? This is a chance to take your business to the next level!
If you are in doubt, read the story of Mrs. Ayodeji Megbope, the Moi-Moi seller that has travelled to different parts of the world and met with heads of states on account of her contact with this Goldman Sachs 10,000 women program.
