What our graduates have to say


10,000 Women really opened my eyes to the world of business. With the skills and knowledge I’ve learned through the courses I have a clearer sense of how I can grow my business to reach more customers and expand our product lines.

Sharing experiences and getting advice are crucial aspects of this invaluable support network which help me continue learning even after completing the program.


Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women came to me at a point in my business where I needed the tools to propel me to the next level of my entrepreneurial journey. To say that it was an investment of time that reaped amazing dividends is an understatement.

I received great practical lessons via an easy to understand and user friendly platform, and in the process also felt validated by how much I was doing intuitively in my business that I now had the language to describe.

I cannot recommend this course enough – if you are thinking about do it – stop thinking and start doing! You will not regret it.


I’m very happy I applied to 10,000 Women. I can now see the business as a whole and know our opportunities. I understand the importance of growing my team and myself to achieve desired goals, and also to be able to see those goals and name them. Once you have clarity in business, everything has meaning and purpose.
