GOFORTH INSTITUTE PARTNERS WITH CANADIAN COMMUNITY COLLEGES TO OFFER ENTREPRENEURSHIP TRAINING
CALGARY, ALBERTA (January 9, 2012) — GoForth Institute announced today new partnerships with several Canadian community colleges to offer GoForth’s leading online entrepreneurship training to students.
“GoForth’s training is online, relevant and current and they have a great track record of delivering entrepreneurship training to Canadian entrepreneurs,” said Rod Holt, Director, Business and Leadership at Red Deer College. “One problem Canadian colleges face in the future is the cost to develop and keep educational programming current. We partnered with GoForth Institute to jointly offer their programming to Red Deer College students. This is a win win relationship.”
Red Deer College offers innovative education programs to students in a friendly environment, but is also on a major expansion track to allow even more students in the years to come to experience the RDC advantage. GoForth is also partnering with Olds College and several colleges in Ontario to jointly offer entrepreneurship training. Another 16 colleges are reviewing the opportunity to partner with GoForth at the time of this announcement.
“GoForth is thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver our small business training with leading Canadian colleges,” said GoForth President and Founder Dr. Leslie Roberts. “Our entrepreneurship training is the comprehensive and delivered conveniently online. Colleges know they are offering the latest and most current theory and practice in small business management to their students. We couldn’t be happier about our growth in this market.”
