Proyecto Cuba Emprende, offers training and advisory services to Cuban entrepreneurs who wish to start or improve a small business. PCE's core program for current and aspiring entrepreneurs is 80 hours of classroom instruction in the areas of human resources, marketing and management, finance and accounting, and sales and customer service. Course participants complete a business plan, and graduates with promising business prospects are offered continued advisory services through the PCE's Incubator and Center for Business Development.
This project will expand Proyecto Cuba Emprende's training program for Cuban entrepreneurs to three additional cities, to continue its existing programs in Havana, Camagüey and Cienfuegos, and to broaden the reach of its training, advisory and continuing education services. Approximately 3,500 entrepreneurs will be trained over the three-year period, and advisory services of the Business Incubator and the Center for Business Development will be expanded.
