Provo, Utah (PRWEB) September 23, 2015
Quito Ecuador showed it in not lacking in the entrepreneurial spirit at a Job Fair held September 17-18th, 2015. 864 people signed up to receive the new Masters of Business in the Street (MBS) program written by Interweave Solutions of the USA and sponsored by ConQuito, the city of Quito's economic development agency.
"We are pleased and excited about the local response to the MBS program," said Dean Curtis co-founder of Interweave Solution. "People want to learn how to run a business but can't afford the time or money for a college degree. Meeting on a weekly basis, setting goals, learning the "6ps" of business (Plan, product, process, price, promotion and paper work) and holding each other accountable, these new entrepreneurs learn business while holding a job or selling their wares. We have seen businesses grow and become great economic contributors!. It is exciting to see!"
Interweave will be offering 17 MBS classes in Quito in the next four months using the ConQuito training facilities around the city. Small business is an important part of the Quito's economic plan. Helping informal businesses into the formal economy is an important part of that plan.
"We are happy to have Interweave as a partner with us," exclaimed the ConQuito Job Fair Director. "With the economic instability in neighboring Venezuela and Columbia, we need to develop business and support for the many Ecuadorians returning to our country. We also have a huge increase of immigrants looking for a better life. Welcome, Interweave!"
To get the MBS certificate, the graduates have to attend a weekly meeting for four months, develop a business plan and implement it, develop a home/life personal plan and offer service to the group and community.
All of the plans and financial journals of the new or expanding businesses are reviewed by Interweave Solutions for quality control. Once each person is approved they pay a small fee and are qualified to receive their MBS diploma.
Interweave recently graduated twenty people from the MBS pilot program with ConQuito. There is excitement to expand. Just ask 864 new enrollees to the Quito MBS program. Those interested in contributing to helping spread self-reliance in Ecuador can learn more here.
