What is the EMPRETEC Model?


The EMPRETEC model is an integrated, one-stop enterprise development and support programme that consists of a comprehensive package of core services and ancillary interventions designed to improve the operational efficiency and enhance the competitiveness and profitability of emerging Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSEs), both in the domestic and export markets, and also small scale farmers in the rural areas. 


EMPRETEC, the Spanish acronym for emprendedores (entrepreneurs) and tecnología (technology), is the integrated capacity-building programme of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development(UNCTAD) in the area of SMEs and entrepreneurial skills promotion. It is dedicated to helping promising entrepreneurs put their ideas into action and fledgling businesses to grow. The EMPRETEC programme has been initiated in 38 countries, assisting entrepreneurs through local market driven EMPRETEC core products and focusing on the behavioral approach to entrepreneurship development.
