Monday, April 14, 2015. AARON HUMES Reporting: A two and a half-day workshop has opened at the Belize Institute of Management (BIM), focusing on developing entrepreneurship in Belize, Central America and the Dominican Republic.
The Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE) signed up ninety entrepreneurs from around the country to learn about entrepreneurship and developing their businesses as well as preparing proposals to access capital.
Facilitator and national advisor on the Regional Entrepreneurship Training Program for BELTRAIDE, Christine Smith, says the key to operating a successful small business is knowing your customer base and fulfilling a specific need in the community.
Otherwise, you could find yourself overwhelmed by too many similar businesses in your field or area.
The workshop runs through Wednesday and is being held in conjunction with SICA, the Government of Taiwan and the Center for the Promotion of Micro and Small Enterprises (CENPROMYPE).
