ShadeFLA is a Hispanic-owned business and 10,000 Small Businesses graduate providing shade structures for the hospitality, commercial and high end markets. The boutique awning company provides high wind and high tech beautiful structures so we can live outdoors and stay shaded.

“ShadeFLA is grateful for the opportunity to have bid on a Goldman Sachs project in New York in 2020-21. As a Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses (10KSB) graduate, I greatly benefitted from participating in the program that taught me to take my business to the next level. Through the Goldman Sachs vendor program which was open to GS10KSB alumni, I was able to successfully bid on and win two contracts for shade structures at The Conrad New York Downtown. The timing of these awards was crucial for ShadeFLA’s sales during the pandemic. As a Hispanic-owned business, we appreciated these contracts because they kept our bottom line growing, providing funds to keep our team employed.” - Margueritte Ramos, President, ShadeFLA Inc
