Foundation E Launches ‘Yo Emprendo’

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - BusinessDetermined to boost the economy and with the goal of supporting the efforts of Latinos living in the U.S., “Fundación E” (Foundation E), is launching entrepreneur training workshops in five U.S. cities, including Chicago, under the motto “Yo Emprendo” (My Start-Up). The Spanish-language workshops are designed for Spanish-speaking communities in the United States. Mexico City based Fundación E’s mission is to foster the development and creation of businesses and thereby jobs that provide dignity and are sustainable.

“We are proud to play a role in developing international economic strength by offering these training courses to willing and able participants,” expressed Fundación E Executive President, Samuel González Guzmán.

Guzmán, added that the program “Yo Emprendo” under the umbrella of “Jovenes Emprendedores” (Youth Entrepreneurs) is not a particular about age, but rather more about being young at heart and ready to undertake a new opportunity. Participants must be at least 18 years of age and have the use of a computer. The workshops include in person training at the workshop location and online instruction hours (the building of the business plan). The cost without a scholarship is $230. However, thanks to Mexico’s Ministry of the Economy, limited scholarships are available to the first 2,000 students of Mexican descent, which reduces the cost for the workshops to only $50, which covers class materials.
