DENVER — The Mexican Consulate in Denver invites women of Mexican origin living abroad to participate in its third edition of the Consular Entrepreneurship Program for Mexicans Abroad (PCEME). The four-stage program begins March 27.
The goal of the program is to help women who have either immigrated from Mexico or who are of Mexican descent start their own business while providing opportunities to build networks and access mentorship.
The Mexican Consulate in Denver carries out the program in partnership with the organization Amigos de México, the Office of International and Immigrant Affairs of the City of Aurora, the Office of Minority Businesses of Colorado and the Thunderbird School of Global Management.
According to the Consulate, participants will go through four stages of education. The first stage of the program is scheduled for March 27 through May 5.
During Stage I, participants will go through the DreamBuilder program, developed by the Thunderbird School of Global Management, a special unit at Arizona State University. The 13-chapter program contains concepts including sales, marketing, human resources, and finance.
Upon completion of the program, participants will have a complete, personalized business plan and receive a certificate from the Thunderbird Global School of Management and Freeport-McMoRan Company.
The deadline to apply is Friday, March 3. To apply, people first need to complete the registration questionnaire on the Consulate's website. Interested participants are also asked to provide a signed letter with their application, explaining why they are interested and reaffirming their commitment to complete all activities associated with the PCEME. More detailed instructions on how to apply can be found on the Mexican Consulate website.
