Press


From Fundación Empretec Argentina we seek to establish sustainable value chains in each community, promoting the development of local ventures in order to strengthen the regional economy and the creation of genuine employment. For this purpose, we train entrepreneurs through our programs: the Entrepreneurship Training Workshop (ETW) and Communities with Value (CWV). Moreover, for 10 years we have been organizing National Bank Innovative Endeavors Contest and we constantly participate in meetings, conferences and trainings within the worldwide entrepreneurial ecosystem together with the UNCTAD, the Empretec centers located in 40 countries in the five continents and international institutions specialized in the subject like Global Entrepreneurship Network.

Our Mission is to promote the development of the entrepreneurial culture in order to contribute to the creation of a responsible entrepreneurial fabric committed to its community and the environment adding value, generating jobs and enhancing society's well-being.

From its beginnings in 1998, the Entrepreneurship Training Workshop (ETW) has been held in each of the 24 Argentine provinces and the Communities with Value (CWV) Program, since its creation in 2016, has been implemented in 10 different provinces of the country. Fundación Empretect Argentina (The Empretec Foundation of Argentina) is a pioneer and a benchmark for other regional centers since today it collaborates with the implementation of the UNCTAD | Empretec Program in countries like Ecuador, Spain and Paraguay.

In 2018 the Entrepreneurship Training Workshop (ETW) was carried out 18 times, training more than 400 entrepreneurs, adding a total of 8000 entrepreneurs to the "empretecos" community since the Foundation’s creation in 1988. The Communities with Value (CWV) Program aims to promote the development of regional economies. In 2018 we trained more than 150 entrepreneurs and strategic partnerships were established among them to enhance the economic sustainability of their projects and, consequently, of their communities.
