Entrepreneurship Training Workshop

General

Entrepreneurship Training Workshop
The Entrepreneurship Training Workshop has been developed at the Harvard University by David McClelland for the UNCTAD. The programme later became the flagship of the Empretec Centres around the world. It is viewed as one of the best training in entrepreneurship training for almost two decades.
It is an integrated entrepreneurial capacity-building programme that provides entrepreneurship training and technical assistance to promote Small and Medium Enterprise development (SME) by:
• promoting entrepreneurship;
• fostering individual entrepreneurial capabilities;
• building institutional capacity at the country level; and
• Encouraging employment-creating investment and linkages both among SMEs as well as between large and small enterprises.
This workshop was designed for real business people or aspiring entrepreneurs and the main idea is that there are competencies and behaviours that can be taught which lead to success.
Objectives
The Objective of the Workshop is an intensive entrepreneurship training programme aiming at helping entrepreneurs to put their idea into action, bring an attitudinal change and build their personal entrepreneurial skills. It gives the participants the possibility to lab test their Personal Entrepreneurial Competencies (PECs) and improve on the latter.
UNCTAD Accredited International Trainers / Resource Persons
This unique workshop is run in collaboration with Empretec Gambia, who is providing UNCTAD accredited international trainers. The trainers undergo intensive training and come from the business community to better understand and guide the empretecos (common name for those who have followed the course) through the behaviours that will be practiced.
Methodology
The ETW Programme is different from other programmes in the sense that the EMPRETEC methodology used during the Entrepreneurship Training Workshop (ETW) is based on the concept of entrepreneurship from a psychological point of view and a behavioural approach to entrepreneurship.
Duration:
• Instructional six days training on a full-time basis from Monday to Saturday.

Personal Entrepreneurial Competencies
In essence the major behaviours that are transformed during the ETW known as the PECs (Personal Entrepreneurial Competencies) and are below listed:
1. Opportunity Seeking and Initiative
2. Persistence
3. Fulfilling Commitments
4. Demand for Efficiency and Quality
5. Taking Calculated Risks
6. Goal Setting
7. Information Seeking
8. Systematic Planning and Monitoring
9. Persuasion and Networking
10. Independence and Self-confidence

The Spirit & Impact of ETW
Essential and unique among numerous SME support programmes, it is the only one dealing with behavioural aspects of entrepreneurship.
ETW is a "transformational experience"; it provides tools to fulfill one's goals and dreams through:
• personal transformation and approach to business from a new perspective;
• improved business behaviours; and
• Offering practical tools on how to improve entrepreneurial competencies such as: goal setting, systematic planning and monitoring, business plans, information seeking, seizing opportunities and risk taking.
• At least 400,000 Empretecos (people having undergone ETW Training) have been trained worldwide by the 38 Empretec Centres.
