Laredo, Texas – Entrepreneurs looking for guidance on starting or expanding their businesses are invited to attend the Binational Entrepreneurship Workshop organized by International Empowerment Strategies, LLC and Texas A&M International University‘s Office of Global Initiatives. The free workshop will take place at TAMIU’s Student Center 236 on Thursday, March 30, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Binational Entrepreneurship Workshop aims to provide participants with valuable information on starting a business in the USA, work visas, and success stories from established entrepreneurs. Nelly Vielma, founder of International Empowerment Strategies, said the topics were chosen based on demand from business entrepreneurs.
“As a business coach organization, we have seen a growing demand for training, mentorship, and business coaching for women,” said Vielma. “We wanted to provide a platform for entrepreneurs to gain knowledge and valuable insights from successful business owners and experts.”
The workshop will be open to all audiences and aims to serve as a blueprint for entrepreneurs looking to start a business in the United States. The event’s importance is highlighted due to the geographic position of the region, which is located on the border between the United States and Mexico. The workshop aims to provide a cross-border perspective on entrepreneurship and to help entrepreneurs navigate the legal requirements to start a business in the United States.
“We recognize that starting a business can be challenging, especially for those who are new to the country or are unfamiliar with the legal requirements,” said Vielma. “We want to provide entrepreneurs with the tools and resources they need to succeed.”
The workshop will feature a diverse range of speakers, including successful business owners, immigration lawyers, and business coaches. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from experts on a range of topics, including legal requirements to obtain a visa, how to start a business in the USA, and success stories from established entrepreneurs.
“We have a great lineup of speakers who bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the table,” said Vielma. “We are confident that attendees will leave the workshop feeling inspired and equipped with the knowledge they need to succeed.”
The Binational Entrepreneurship Workshop is completely free, and a link will be provided for those joining virtually from Nuevo Laredo and beyond. Those interested in attending the workshop can call 956-326-2832 or email [email protected].
“We are excited to offer this workshop to entrepreneurs in our community,” said Vielma. “We believe that entrepreneurship is a powerful tool for economic empowerment, and we want to do our part to help entrepreneurs succeed.”
