Philadelphia, PA and Spokane, WA – May 11, 2017 – Synergema, a national digital marketing firm, proudly announces that its President and Big Idea Guy, Brandon Steiger, has graduated from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Scholarship Program (10KSB, Cohort 12). Steiger was honored to be voted the Class Representative by colleagues in this exceptional educational program. As such, he delivered the graduation speech at the April 21st ceremony.
“The Program challenged me from day one. It forced me to take a hard look at myself and my company,” said Steiger. “10kSB provided me the necessary tools and encouragement to think differently about my business, my team, and where we are going. In fact, I’ve already had the opportunity to put my growth plan into action.”
Steiger founded Synergema 12 years ago to help organizations develop innovative and creative strategies for the web. With more than 21 years of experience, Brandon’s technological background allows Synergema to partner with IT and marketing departments alike, to deliver the right digital solution for each client.
As students, the chosen business leaders spent 14 weeks - roughly 100 class hours - at the Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) studying a business and management curriculum designed by Babson College and delivered by CCP faculty. Topics include accounting, human resources, negotiation and marketing, as well as one-on-one business advising, accounting workshops and advice from Goldman Sachs professionals. The Program is guided by an advisory council including Babson, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, Bloomberg founder, CEO, and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Berkshire Hathaway chairman and CEO Warren Buffett.
Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program has provided Philadelphia area entrepreneurs with timely strategies for managing and growing successful businesses since 2013. The graduates join a growing alumni base of other small business owners, who are now spurring their local economies, and creating jobs in every county in this region - as far east as Atlantic City and as far south as Delaware.
