GROVEPORT–- Cuthbert received a scholarship into the Babson Cohort of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses. The national program was created to help business owners create jobs and economic opportunity by providing greater access to education, capital and business support services. She was chosen for the scholarship out of 600 entrepreneurs.
Approximately 150 entrepreneurs from 33 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico completed the blended online and face-to-face courses, which taught classes from Babson’s business experts and peers alongside educational teams who taught the program at colleges across the country.
“It was an honor to be chosen among so many talented entrepreneurs,” Cuthbert said. “The program provides a safe place where leaders can enhance their learning to be better leaders of tomorrow.”
Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is overseen by an advisory council by Babson President, Kerry Healey. It is co-chaired by Lloyd C. Blankfein, Goldman Sachs chairman and CEO; Michael R. Bloomberg, Bloomberg L.P. founder, president and CEO and 108th mayor of the City of New York; Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and CEO; and Dr. Michael Porter, the Initiative for the Competitive Inner City’s. The National Urban League and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce are also represented on the Advisory Council, among others.
Babson College is a living and learning laboratory where students, faculty and staff come together to address the real-world problems of business and society.
Cuthbert and Baker Creative also received an invitation to contribute content for The Huffington Post. They were selected to share their expertise to engage small business owners and entrepreneurs.
