The GoForth Institute has launched entrepreneurship training to try to reduce the high failure rate of startup businesses.
Currently, 35% of business startups fail within two years and 50% fail within five years, said GoForth founder Leslie McGeough.
The company offers online mobile business skills training, based on interviews with 200 founders of successful companies. Those leaders were asked which skills make the difference between success and failure.
Over 10,000 entrepreneurs have taken the GoForth training. More than 90% said the training was extremely valuable. The same percentage are still operational two years later.
The GoForth Institute offers training at a cost, but its website also contains lots of free, valuable resources. For more information, visit the GoForth Institute website.
