GoDaddy Launches Empower Program In Canada In Collaboration With Futurpreneur 

 GoDaddy today announced a national partnership with Futurpreneur for the Canadian launch of Empower by GoDaddy, a global community program equipping entrepreneurs with the training, digital tools, and expert guidance needed to accelerate their entrepreneurial journeys and grow their businesses online.

In collaboration with Futurpreneur, a national non-profit which has delivered financing, mentorship and resources for diverse young entrepreneurs aged 18-39 for over 25 years across Canada, Empower by GoDaddy will support aspiring entrepreneurs with dedicated training and educational resources. This collaboration provides passionate entrepreneurs with access to workshops and intensive bootcamps in both English and French, curated by Futurpreneur, as well as access to a global network of business experts. The Empower curriculum offers a chance to learn new skills in key areas from website building, e-commerce design and brand development, to better understanding search engine optimization tools and digital marketing on social media platforms.

The first workshops, titled “Website Best Practices” (in English) and “Les meilleures pratiques du Web” (in French) will focus on how to strategically build a website and improve a business’ digital presence. The next round of workshops, “Social Media Best Practices” (August 10, 2022, in English) and “Les meilleures pratiques des médias sociaux” (August 17, 2022, in French), will help entrepreneurs to better understand how social media can be leveraged to support their business goals.

Resources that Close a Gap for Small Businesses

According to a recent study conducted by Logit Group on behalf of GoDaddy Canada, small business owners see increasing value in digital tools and having an online presence. Yet nearly one-quarter of businesses reported unfamiliarity and a general lack of knowledge with digital tools.  

Understanding these challenges, the Empower by GoDaddy program is built on years of experience to help small business owners close the knowledge and skills gap in a business world facing digital transformation. With access to GoDaddy’s 10-course online curriculum and resources, participants can join workshops hosted by Futurpreneur and led by a GoDaddy expert to further empower them to take their first steps in building, managing and growing their online presence.

All Empower by GoDaddy program participants will receive a free two-year subscription to the GoDaddy Websites + Marketing commerce website builder tool, as well as a .com, .org or .ca domain name of their choice for two years. Participants can also access monthly live sessions on digital presence topics, hosted by Futurpreneur and facilitated by GoDaddy customer support experts.
