Washington D.C., United States, May 13, 2015 -- El Salvador and Honduras will host two workshops focused on training for System Support and Business Development, the workshops are a part of the Regional Nex Links program "Monitoring Network for Young Entrepreneurs" of the Young Americas Business Trust (YABT). The workshops will focus on the creation of mechanisms and tools to support young entrepreneurs’ startups and expansion phases of their business.

The first training program will take place in San Salvador, El Salvador, from June 15th to 19th, 2015, in collaboration with local strategic partners: the National Commission for Micro and Small Enterprises (CONAMYPE for its name in Spanish) of the Ministry of Economy and the Salvadoran Association for the Integral Development of Youth (ASAES).

The second workshop will take place in Tugucigalpa, Honduras from June 22th to 26th, 2015 in collaboration with the Center for Entrepreneurship at the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH).

The aim of this program is to transfer new tools, content and methodologies that contribute to strengthen the capacities of public and private entities responsible for providing business services and integrated support in the different stages of the business development process.
