Sembrando grants 400 business administration scholarships to entrepreneurs from all over the country

The President of the Republic, Luis Lacalle Pou, witnessed the launch of the Administra tu Entrepreneurship project, carried out by Sembrando. Lorena Ponce de León, promoter of the program, explained that a total of 400 scholarships will be assigned to impart practical knowledge of business administration to entrepreneurs from the 19 departments of Uruguay. “You have to have security to sell more, and more intelligently,” she explained.

In addition to Lacalle Pou and Ponce de León, the Secretary of the Presidency, Álvaro Delgado; the director of the Office of Planning and Budget (OPP), Isaac Alfie, and the head of Operations of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in Uruguay, Fernando Cuenin, as well as representatives of private companies.

He added that those interested can register as of this Wednesday 4, through a form that will be published on Sembrando’s social networks. In addition, he noted that the courses will begin on May 27, whose workload is 20 hours of training.

He also explained that all entrepreneurs with initiatives formalized or in the process of being formalized can sign up. On the occasion, he appreciated that the new program is sponsored by Seguros Sura and the IDB and executed by CPA Ferrere and Universitario Crandon.

He pointed out that 99.6% of the country’s companies are small and medium-sized (SMEs) and cover 54.5% of total jobs in Uruguay. “Yes, it will be important to help them so that they continue to grow, provide more employment, development and job opportunities for so many Uruguayans”he expressed.

Ponce de León recalled that Sembrando began in 2020 with the task of helping entrepreneurs develop work tools that offer certainty and security, with the aim of better marketing and making their products more visible. “It is important for entrepreneurs to know how to manage and thus continue to grow,” he said.

Cuenin mentioned that the joint work with Sembrando allows the IDB to support micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and, in this way, achieve inclusive development throughout the national territory.
