Since opening in October 2001 to assist businesses affected by 9/11, the Small Business Development Center at LaGuardia Community College has counseled more than 8,000 business owners, helping many to access capital and create jobs. Now, recognizing that community colleges are engines that drive economic development, Goldman Sachs has announced that LaGuardia will be its first partner in a $500 million initiative with small businesses across the country. “Small businesses are key to growing the economy,” said Jane Schulman, vice president of the Division of Adult and Continuing Education at LaGuardia, which oversees the center. “This initiative will help small business owners navigate the system of marketing and the system of business plans and help to grow their businesses.”
