Helping Entrepreneurs Thrive! in Canada
Rivers Corbett, MBA is an award winning serial entrepreneur, international speaker, startUP entrepreneurial thought leader, and author of "13 Fears of Entrepreneurs" as well as "10 Insider Secrets All Small Business Owners Must Know.".
Since becoming an entrepreneur over 22 years ago, I have been fortunate to receive numerous business awards including: 2015 Business Person of the Year, Canada's Hottest Start-ups List, Canada's Fastest Growing Companies list through Profit magazine and recently given the StartUP Canada designation as Atlantic Canada Entrepreneurship Leadership Emeritus.
I am particularly proud of my work and passion, nationally and provincially, advancing the success potential of entrepreneurs. I am a founding board member of StartUP Canada as well as their host of the StartUP Canada Podcast Show. Recently, I was very fortunate to be given the first position as Entrepreneur in Residence, with Opportunities New Brunswick team, to significantly move the needle on the spirit and actions of entrepreneurship throughout the province
As the Director, Partnerships, I am connected with GoForth Institute, which offers Canada's leading small business training program, helping entrepreneurs across the country run better businesses, become better leaders, embrace change and face their future with more confidence. 91% of GoForth's customers are still in business two years after completing their program. Use Promo Code "Atlas" for $20 towards your subscription.
And now for something completely different, I am open to opportunities and have recently embraced the role of Chief Operating Officer, with The Best Deodorant in the World. An amazing social conscious company, with a organic, vegan based, environmentally conscious product and package. So looking forward to this new journey.
If you are a startup or emerging entrepreneur we should connect and learn from each other!
