In collaboration with Hispanic Unity of South Florida, Broward SCORE is happy to announce the completion of its first Spanish language program. Broward SCORE mentors Carlos Ayala and Ernie Cevallos SCORE translated the 5 workshop series Simple Steps for Starting Your Business and led the workshops in Spanish. They were supported by Score mentor Hector Arrillaga.

On March 19, 2012 the first class of 10 clients graduated. “Together with Hispanic Unity we are delighted with the results of the pilot program,” reports George Gremse Broward SCORE’s Vice Chairman “We will present the program  three more times throughout 2012 at the Hispanic Unity facility in Hollywood, Florida”.

The workshops take participants through developing their business concept, building a marketing plan, establishing a financial forecast, defining the startup capital needed and identifying funding sources.

The program is also run in English throughout the year. Go to www.broward.score.org for more information.
