    Techopia Live: Ottawa's GoFor deepening U.S. reach following $500K pitchfest win

    The big winner at last month's AccelerateOTT pitchfest was Ottawa-based GoFor, which took home a grand-prize $500,000 investment after organizers revealed a last-minute boost in funding. Techopia Live brought CEO Brad Rollo on the show this week to learn more about how the firm is ramping up its plans to expand its construction industry marketplace south of the border.

GoFor – Why Work With Us?


Having spent 10 years in the construction industry after a career in technology, co-founder Brad Rollo recognized a common problem faced by people like him.

As a general contractor he spent most of his days running around being a gofer for his teams, picking up and delivering last-minute needed materials to his various job sites.

He realized that while large orders were often well handled by suppliers, there was a gap in the supply chain for smaller material orders.

In 2016, Brad and technology co-founder Raj Halli launched GoFor’s online and mobile apps and on-demand delivery service to fill the void for contractors that needed a few extra supplies delivered in a timely manner.

Since then, GoFor has expanded its offering to fill the need for same day and last mile logistics support for distributors and suppliers. GoFor’s flexible, on-demand services allows businesses to supplement their busy fleets or choose GoFor as their exclusive out-sourced logistics partner for affordable and reliable local and out-of-town deliveries.

GoFor is now operational in over 20 cities in Canada and will continue its expansion into additional North American markets throughout 2019.
