On May 29 and 30th, 2019, the entrepreneurship Bootcamp organized by the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Zootechnics of the University of San Carlos of Guatemala was carried out, which was facilitated by Pomona AgTech and sponsored by Heifer International Guatemala.
This Bootcamp had the purpose of being an educational award for the students who presented outstanding performance during the entrepreneurship course that was taught by Lic. Axel Godoy from January to May. In this subject, the students received entrepreneurship basic content and at the end of the classes they presented their entrepreneurship projects in a project fair called EMPRENDE USAC. The best qualified projects were selected for the USAC-FMVZ Pomona AgTech Bootcamp 2019, in which they received tools to deepen the solidity of their business models. There were six selected ventures, each with enthusiastic members and interesting business ideas that were evaluated by a panel of judges to select the best business model. The winning venture was HIVES, from Miss Sayra Pérez, who is producing artisan honey to market in Guatemala City.
The bootcamp was made possible thanks to the excellent support of the faculty of the FMVZ and the sponsorship of Heifer International Guatemala. Heifer contributed the seed capital of GTQ 7,500.00 ($1,000) that Ms. Pérez will use to improve the image of her enterprise and make it grow.
