"Rick Goossen is the renaissance man of entrepreneurship. With Canadian and U.S. law degrees, he has the legal knowledge. He founded and runs a business that raises money for entrepreneurs, so he has the financial knowledge. He teaches entrepreneurial skills at the university level, so he has the academic knowledge. And perhaps most importantly, all of Goossen's entrepreneurial knowledge and work is guided by his unique, values-driven view of enterprise. Rick Goossen is an entrepreneur for all seasons. I look forward to reviewing his manuscript and then reading his published book on The Greatest Thinkers on Entrepreneurship."

--Kevin G. Sawatsky, professor, and currently the Dean of the School of Business at Trinity Western University
