WEC Kicks Off Pathways Training in Mexico City

On October 20--24, 2014, WEC and its project partners hosted its inaugural training workshop in Mexico City as part of the State Department-funded Pathways to Prosperity Innovation Challenge. The Challenge was created to discover existing local, high-impact solutions that empower small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Latin America and the Caribbean to advance economic development and prosperity, awarding up to $500,000 each to the four best projects. Representatives from these four awardees as well as 8 of the Challenge’s semifinalists were in attendance.

Over the intense few days of training, finalists learned how to develop tools that will help them develop implementation plans and budgets, and establish, measure, and report on targets for success. The productive and collegial atmosphere of the workshop received high marks from all participants, and has likewise set the stage for an encouraging next phase of the Pathways Challenge.
