About the 2022 Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Summit

The Summit will be held over two days at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center and Nationals Park where thousands of small business owners and alumni of Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Small Businesses education program, top entrepreneurs, members of congress, and administration officials will come together to define the future of America’s small business agenda. Following the pandemic and amid historic inflation, supply chain and workforce challenges, the Summit will bring together policymakers to share solutions to accelerate growth and create jobs to power our economic recovery.

Small business owners will also hold over 400 meetings with lawmakers to advocate for policies and legislation affecting them, including access to capital, workforce and competitiveness, childcare and government contracting. They are calling on Congress to do something it hasn’t done in over twenty years: reauthorize the Small Business Administration to meet the needs of today’s small businesses.


Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center

July 19, 8:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

The first day of the Summit will include interactive programming where small business owners will hear from industry leaders and experts, as well as attend breakout sessions that focus on optimizing business growth, ranging from best practices for effective hiring, to accessing capital, leadership and more. Participants will have the opportunity to network, learn and meet thousands of fellow 10,000 Small Businesses alumni from across the country.


Nationals Park Baseball Stadium

July 20, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

On day two of the Summit, the 10,000 Small Businesses community will collectively meet with over 400 congressional offices in a single day to advocate for bipartisan solutions to support small businesses across the country on issues such as the reauthorization of the SBA, access to capital, workforce and competitiveness, child care, and government contracting.
