According to the 2015 Geoscape report, Hispanics in the U.S. are more likely to become entrepreneurs. Unfortunately Hispanic businesses are more likely to fail, or stop growing. Some of the factors that influence the failure of Hispanic business are access to capital, lack of knowledge and networking opportunities. On 2017 UTEP will host the fourth annual Rookie Entrepreneur Program. The REP is a week long program with the objective of providing high school students with the necessary foundations to start up their own business. This program does not only provide the necessary knowledge, but it also gives the students the opportunity to have a hands-on experience.
The Rookie Entrepreneur Program is a great way to get a head start on your career! The fourth annual Rookie Entrepreneur Program will be taking place on July 17 – 22 of 2017.
More information on this event will be released soon!
