Graduacion Capacitacion Empresarial Virtual
Graduacion Capacitacion Empresarial Virtual

“Ha sido una experiencia de crecimiento constante”. “Me dio una visión de hacia dónde quiero llegar”. “Lo más que me gustó es sentirme parte de una comunidad”. Estas son algunas de las expresiones de los participantes del segundo ciclo de Capacitación Empresarial Virtual Semillas. 

El pasado 2 de diciembre culminó este ciclo virtual con la ceremonia de graduación y la entrega de certificados.  En una concurrida actividad, se celebraron los logros del camino recorrido durante los pasados meses por los 23 empresarios.  Tuvieron la oportunidad de presentar sus microempresas utilizando el método de “elevator pitch” o “discurso de ascensor”.  Es una forma breve y concisa de presentar el negocio en menos de 1 minuto.  Algunos de los participantes ya están corriendo sus negocios y otros están en la fase preparatoria.  Al ser un ciclo virtual los participantes vienen de diferentes pueblos distantes de la Isla, tales como Yabucoa, Gurabo, Mayagüez, Caguas, Arecibo, Vega Baja y Camuy, entre otros. Las ideas de negocio de estos emprendedores son variadas.  Algunas son: diseño de interiores, escuela de arte híbrida, diseño y confección de trajes de baño, negocio de comida, coffee shop familiar con área de juegos, detalles personalizados y decoración de eventos, costura y bordado.

Estos emprendedores continuarán recibiendo el apoyo de nuestros recursos durante esta fase de implementación de sus negocios.  Estamos muy orgullosos de sus logros.  Agradecemos a todas las personas que con sus donaciones a este proyecto han hecho posible que sigamos apoyando el desarrollo económico de Puerto Rico a través de los empresarios locales.

"It's been an experience of constant growth." "It gave me a vision of where I want to go." "The thing I liked the most is feeling part of a community." These are some of the expressions of the participants of the second cycle of Semillas Virtual Business Training. 

On December 2, this virtual cycle culminated with the graduation ceremony, and awarding of certificates.  In a well-attended activity, we celebrated the achievements of 23 entrepreneurs during the path traveled on past months.  They had the opportunity to present their micro-enterprises using the "elevator pitch" method.  It's a short and concise way to introduce the business in less than 1 minute.  Some of the participants are already running their businesses while others are in the preparatory phase.  As this was a virtual cycle, the participants came from different distant towns of the island, such as Yabucoa, Gurabo, Mayagüez, Caguas, Arecibo, Vega Baja and Camuy, among others. Their business ideas are varied.  Some of them are: interior design, hybrid art school, swimwear design and tailoring, food business, family coffee shop with play area, personalized details and event decoration, sewing and embroidery.

These entrepreneurs will continue to receive the support of our resources during this phase of implementing their businesses.  We are very proud of their accomplishments.  We thank all the people who, with their donations to this project, have made it possible for us to continue supporting the economic development of Puerto Rico through local entrepreneurs.
