InteRDom, GFDD and FUNGLODE’s internship program in the Dominican Republic, will organize two events for small business owners in collaboration with the Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE).
Both events will be presented by Charlie Poticher and Eric Miller of Empowered United People (EPU), an organization that seeks to help small and medium-sized businesses and organizations achieve economic success by
providing assistance in concept development.
The first program, “Thinking Like an Entrepreneur,” will take place Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 6:30 pm at the Universidad Iberoamericana. The objective of the seminar is to motivate young entrepreneurs and promote discussion on the following themes:
  • Entrepreneurial Spirit: An Economic Solution for Dominican
  • Converting Academic Lessons into Skills for Success
  • Social Enterprise: How Can it Be a Part of Your Value System?
The second program, “Elevating Your Small and Medium-Sized Businesses to the Next Level,” will take place at FUNGLODE Headquarters in Santo Domingo on Wednesday, September 26, at 7:00 pm. This program is directed towards NGO and small and medium-sized business
representatives. Conference participants will be exposed to strategies for generating ideas, avoiding stagnation, accepting and managing change and maximizing the success of business incubators.
NGO and business representatives will have the opportunity to converse with business owners from the United States and learn about how their businesses and organizations can benefit from participating in InteRDom’s Internship
