Can entrepreneurship be taught?

By Samantha Garner | September 17, 2010

In this month’s newsletter at GoForth Institute, we’re examining the concepts of new beginnings and education – perfect for September and back-to-school time! One question we’re asking is:

Can entrepreneurship be taught?

At GoForth Institute, we believe in supplying entrepreneurs with basic small business skills – things such as understanding cash flow, analyzing competition and knowing government regulations. We also train entrepreneurs in general small business concepts like learning market positioning strategies, competing effectively and raising capital. Lastly, we encourage creativity and being open to new opportunities in business. These are all things that Dr. Richard Goossen, author of Entrepreneurial Excellence: Profit From the Best Ideas of the Experts, believes can be taught.

However, Goossen says that one entrepreneurship element just comes naturally: the ability to recognize specific market opportunities and determine their potential for success.

GoForth Institute’s new expanded website launched

Speaking of new beginnings, we are proud to announce the launch of our brand-new website! We knew that Canadian entrepreneurs were searching for a one-stop resource for everything small business, so that’s what we gave you!

In the words of our President, Dr. Leslie Roberts:

We launch the largest, resource-based website for entrepreneurs in Canada – 1,050 pages of content, resources, free downloads, tips and tricks. We’ve assembled a team of business experts from across Canada who will answer entrepreneurs’ questions in all areas of business, law and government compliance and post the Q+A to the GoForth Community for everyone’s benefits.

Visit the new site and let us know what you think – the opinions of entrepreneurs are what created the new site, so your opinion matters.

A big thank you to the wonderful folks at Evans Hunt for all their help and hard work!
