CMI is a corporation that pursues generating economic, social and environmental value in all the communities where it operates. That is why it seeks to develop different programs that aim to support entrepreneurs in their personal and professional growth so they can start their business.
CMI, through its Corporate University, UCMI, launched a call for 50 Guatemalans from all over the country to be certified for the first time in the Entrepreneurship Program in partnership with Babson College.
The classes will be held online and will also include live sessions, class support material, lectures on entrepreneurship with renowned personalities, and the development of an entrepreneurial project. After 6 months, students will receive a Certificate in entrepreneurship and will have the skills to start their own business.
CMI executives will participate in it, who, on a voluntary basis, have been through 6 months’ training in order to be the facilitators of the program and take this alliance into action.
“This program arises from the strategic alliance between CMI and Babson College, an educational institution with more than 100 years of history and recognized among the best universities in the area of entrepreneurship in the United States of America. Therefore, we are confident that these 50 scholarship recipients will receive useful tools and knowledge for their business,” said Jose Miguel Larios, Senior Director of Corporate Human Resources.
“Through CMI Emprende, we want and hope to support more people to become the owners of their own business. We know that starting a business is not easy. It takes sacrifice and time to be successful in the long run. Our grandfather was a born entrepreneur who always made us “push on forward” with his example, and that is what we are doing here today,” said Juan Luis Bosch, Chairman and President of CMI Capital.
To apply for one of the 50 scholarships of CMI’s Entrepreneurship program, participants should go to www.somoscmi.com, where they will find more information to go through the process. The call for applications will be open for two weeks; from Thursday, March 3rd through Wednesday, March 16th.
