Launch With GS $1 billion investment strategy grounded in our data-driven thesis that diverse teams drive strong returns. Through Launch With GS , Goldman Sachs aims to increase access to capital and facilitate connections for women, Black, Latinx and other diverse entrepreneurs and investors.

What Motivates Us

Companies led by diverse management teams leverage a range of perspectives to better compete in a global economy.

What Motivates Us

Despite the numbers, only a small percentage of U.S. venture capital goes to diverse teams.

Additionally, only a small amount of global private equity assets are managed by diverse teams.

Less than 1.3% of the $69 trillion of global financial assets under management is managed by people of color and women

This market imbalance, coupled with our belief that diverse teams outperform, is the catalyst behind Launch With GS.
