Beltraide Bonds With Entrepreneurs
It is a 3-part training to help BELTRAIDE build capacity, today, 7News stopped by. We got a chance to speak with the coordinators about the importance of the workshop, and what is unique about this one.
Here’s what they told us.
Mario Reyes – Workshop Facilitator
“This workshop’s purpose is to build capacities and train in the skills for assisting entrepreneurs in Belize. We are building skills of how to improve the conditions for entrepreneurs and build a stronger entrepreneurial community in this country.”
Christine Smith – Local Project Coordinator
“We’re having an entrepreneurship development training, it’s for consultants and experts. We have the hope of getting together a group of mentors who will work with persons who will then be going through the process of accessing seed fund.”
“Why has BELTRAIDE and the UB seen it as important to have a workshop such as this?”
“This is part of a regional workshop. This workshop is being doing in Central America as well as the Dominican Republic. The funds for the seed capital was obtained by the Taiwan Government and so it is a part of a process that starts off with this first training and then there’s a training for entrepreneurs as well as two other trainings and then after they will access the seed fund. What we’re hoping from this training is to get a group of mentors to work with the entrepreneurs.”
P3 Ventures is currently providing the same training 3 in other countries in this region.
