Just when we thought small businesses were going to experience harder times than major retailers, Goldman Sachs comes to the rescue with a plan to educate and finance small businesses. Their impressive plan to funnel $500 million dollars to provide management education, mentoring, and access to capital to small businesses is the largest of its kind in history. Warren Buffet, who bailed out Goldman Sachs early in this economic crisis, will assist Goldman Sachs in providing theses resources to small businesses.
Major retailers have experienced a loss of funding due to CIT Bank having to eliminate their factoring loan program. Factoring loans were very popular around holiday time for financing Christmas inventory. Retailers now have to finance their own inventory.
Critics say that Goldman Sachs is using this opportunity to improve its image and bad reputation as a result of receiving bailout money and improving its financial position. It would help small businesses to know how to research grants and loans if they would like to take advantage of this opportunity to grow their businesses.
