The Autonomous University of Ciudad Juárez recognized 32 entrepreneurs and presented them with the business plans during a graduation ceremony on Friday.
The future business people crafted their business plans at the university’s Institute of Social Sciences and Administration.
Participation in the program helps people who want to start businesses understand issues they did not previously contemplate. The extra help from the Business Incubator is designed to give new businesses a greater chance of success, said university rector Javier Sánchez Carlos.
He said the university’s program of entrepreneurship is one of the contributions the institution makes to help the city overcome the problems that have been caused by economic crises and insecurity. The program promotes self-employment and job-creation.
The new businesses range from a haberdashery to cake-decorating to new-home construction.
Experts at the Business Incubator are working with 30 more prospective entrepreneurs they expect to complete the program in September.
