Washington, DC – The Young Americas Business Trust (YABT) and Israel renew their strategic alliance for 2014 and announce twelve workshops on Entrepreneurship and Business Development aimed at young people from Latin America and the Caribbean. In addition, two international courses destined to young professionals from the Western Hemisphere will take place this May and July (For more information, click HERE).

These workshops are aimed at young entrepreneurs, young people with potential ideas and business projects, and/or young professionals with the ability to transfer the acquired knowledge to their peers. Workshops will be conducted by specialists from the Golda Meir Monte Carmel International Training Center (MCITC) in Israel. These training sessions are organized by YABT along with its local partners. The latter are benefited by YABT's technical assistance in order to improve their support services throughout the different stages of the entrepreneurial process.

"YABT and Israel have consolidated a long term relationship to support the OAS Member States in reproducing locally Israel's successful story of fostering innovation and entrepreneurship. We encourage public and private institutions to join efforts with YABT to widespread these kind of initiatives to more communities in our region," declared Valerie Lorena, Executive Director of YABT.
