In December 2016 and February 2017 we had several meetings with our Cuban alliance party ANEC and CESPANEC (ANEC’s department of higher education) regarding our inter-active entrepreneurial training program proposal, which we developed in close cooperation with our dedicated and highly motivated team of business experts.
Amalin Sad Rodriguez (member to our Advisory Board) accompanied us last December for the meetings with ANEC. During the meetings we agreed to expand the MoU that was signed in March 2016 between Stichting Credit4Cuba and ANEC.
On 3 February 2017, in the presence of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Cuba (Jan Alderliesten, First Secretary Economic Affairs) and Amalin Sad Rodriguez we signed an Annex to the MoU with our Cuban alliance party ANEC (represented by Oscar Luis Hung Pentón, Paco Borrás, Juan Carlos Prego and Ramón Labañino Salazar). This Annex expresses both parties wish to continue the cooperation and is fully dedicated to our Cuban inter-active entrepreneurial training program 2017.
The full training program, focussed on and for the Cuban small and growing entrepreneurs, is based on the Business Model Canvas (BMC). This canvas is a strategic management and lean start-up template for developing new or documenting existing business models, however flavoureddwith our mutual ideas, concepts and approach.
We will offer 10 interactive workshops and each workshop will be dedicated to one of the BMC’s building blocks. We agreed with ANEC that each workshop will be given by one of our Stichting Credit4Cuba experts in cooperation with an ANEC expert. This way our project is a full cooperation between Cuba and the Netherlands, embedding the Cuban context into the training program at the same time.
Stay tuned for more information on the full training program and the start date!
