Empretec programme’s core product is the Empretec Training Workshop (ETW). The behavioural approach, which the ETW is based on, aims at developing entrepreneurship as a set of specific competencies and practices that can be observed, recognized, applied and acquired by entrepreneurs on their daily lives. By fostering participants’ motivation and self-confidence, the ETW manages to show entrepreneurs the difference between merely running a business and building a growth-oriented enterprise.

Empretec Training Workshops offer different levels of instruction that include:

  • 6-day courses (48 hours);
  • 32-hour (usually spread over 4 days) for micro-entrepreneurs with low levels of literacy;
  • Interactive coaching based on real business challenges of participants.
