The methodology has proved to be effective for a vast range of target audiences in developed and developing economies. It works equally well for mature entrepreneurs and new entrants, opportunity and necessity entrepreneurs, participants with different levels of education. The programme also promotes small supplier development, social and green entrepreneurship.
In phase 1 and 2, UNCTAD delivered 5 online workshops for Empretec certified trainers using the 6-day version of the ETW and 4 other ETW-follow up meetings, including two post-21 day workshops. The sessions were conducted in the three most widely spoken languages across the Empretec network: English, French and Spanish. Training material on the new areas was also revised and translated in the three languages.
