Helping minorities access business opportunities; the story of John Goullet

There are many people who believe that the country is an equal opportunity ground for everyone that lives here. However, the reality is that there are certain groups of people that are still marginalized and do not get the chances they deserve to incubate their business ideas. When a minority group makes it to the big business community, it is usually a cause for celebrations. This is the glass ceiling that John Goullet has managed to break and transform his business from a boutique IT agency to a fully fledged company that supplies staffing solutions to other fortune 500 companies. John is the founder and CEO of Diversant LLC.

John is a graduate of Ursinus College. Like many other graduates, his focus on completing his college education was to find a job. He worked in a few of these companies before he realized that he could no longer ignore the obvious gap that existed between in the job market and especially in IT. He realized that all IT companies, whether large scale or small, seemed to be lacking the needed staff and even when they had employees, their talent did not match the job they were working in. This is when he left Info Computer Technologies and started Diversant LLC.

The company started out small, and had many challenges, including the lack of proper startup capital. But they have managed to turn things around and currently have a capital base of $300million and growing. Responsiveness to the needs of the customer is the single business strategy that has helped them move to where they are

John is also an active philanthropist. He believes in the courses that uplift the minorities. Some of the initiatives he has participated in include The Harlem Business Retention forum. Here, they try to make the businesses incubated in Harlem to stay within and be profitable to the Harlem community. John is also taking part in an initiative that is meant to help the black students in the area to get interested in technical courses, especially at the university level. He is a leader who has vowed to make a difference in his endeavors.
