Over 200 of Canada’s best entrepreneurs helped us develop our comprehensive online training program for entrepreneurs. They told us what skills made the difference between business success and failure for them during start-up and growth. GoForth’s 100 Essential Small Business Skills™ Program is designed for busy, passionate entrepreneurs just like you.
Most small businesses fail. Why? Because most entrepreneurs lack small business skills. In 2009, GoForth Institute launched Canada’s leading online entrepreneurship training program to solve this problem – affordable, convenient, comprehensive small business skills training delivered to every corner of the nation. Over 5,000 entrepreneurs have used GoForth education to help them “know what they don’t know” about running a small business.
"I believe my own entrepreneurial success is due to my education, which was focused on small business. Entrepreneurs love to learn, but they aren’t interested in education that’s uninspiring or unaffordable. I started GoForth Institute to help Canada’s entrepreneurs strongly improve their odds of success in a way that’s relevant and accessible to everyone."
– Dr. Leslie McGeough (President and Founder)
For the extreme poor - people living on less than $1.25 a day - finding a way out of poverty can seem impossible. Many of the solutions available to them are temporary and unsustainable. So how can they save money and create a lasting future for themselves and their communities? TrickleUp is one group working to empower some of the world's poorest citizens to improve their livelihoods.
Since 1979, TrickleUp has been empowering some of the world’s poorest citizens to improve their livelihoods and their communities. TrickleUp offers one-time seed capital grants to entrepreneurs in impoverished countries, as well as skills training to launch or expand a micro-enterprise. The result? Increased household incomes, strengthened local economies, and financial and social empowerment.
GoForth Institute is proud to donate 1% of our small business training sales to support TrickleUp’s mission and programs.
“Everybody, no matter how poor, dreams of a better life and will fight for it, if given the opportunity.”
- Mildred Robbins Leet, TrickleUp Co-Founder
