On March 27 through April 20 Prospera held the Contractors’ Academy in Orlando. This four-week educational program, sponsored by Northwestern Mutual and Telemundo Orlando, allowed 33 Hispanic-owned businesses to learn vital aspects of doing business as contractors in Florida.
The program provided key tools to the participants and covered a variety of topics. Some of the areas of focus were regulations and inspections, project management, and legal principles and practices, among others. Luis Pinzón, president of Condor Construction Corporation, served as presenter and facilitator for the eight sessions. Each session featured a guest speaker who is an expert on the topic covered.
“This Academy has been the best experience. All of the topics covered are useful for our daily business operations. I highly recommend to other business owners and entrepreneurs participating in the next Contractors’ Academy,” said Soralys Rivera, president of SRJ Construction.
This advanced training program for Hispanic entrepreneurs was made possible in large part thanks to Felipe Navarrete from Northwestern Mutual, the lead sponsor.
Congratulations to our 2017 Contractors’ Academy graduates!
