Golnar Khosrowshahi

Creator, GoGoNews

A mother of two and president of a music publishing company, Golnar created GoGoNews, an online news source for children, in 2006.

At the time she wrote it daily and shared it with her twin daughters. As the children grew, so too did GoGoNews, adding more sophisticated content, building a web presence, and distributing the paper to like-minded friends and family. Golnar has a bachelor’s degree from Bryn Mawr College and an MBA from Columbia University.

She is a director of the Hospital for Sick Children Foundation in Toronto, a trustee of Pearson College, a United World College, a member of the President’s Advisory Council at Bryn Mawr
 College, and a director of the Board of Governors at the Toronto French School. She lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband and their children.

GoGo has always operated with the singular mission to educate, expose and entertain the little minds in our lives - one day at a time. GoGoNews provides parents and educators with subject matter to start a conversation with children and a safe means by which to deal with the harsh realities of the world in which we live. Most importantly, GoGoNews is fun!
