PROVIDING THE TOOLS FOR SUCCESS
Sponsored by Freeport-McMoRan, this unique online business training program helps women build their dream of starting or growing their own business. Practical, convenient and fun, DreamBuilder leads women step-by-step through the basics of business. In addition to the interactive courses, students are given access to helpful tools and templates they can use in their own ventures. An innovative Business Plan Generator guides the learner in the creation of a business plan throughout the program.
Following the completion of the program, access to an online forum will connect women with a community of like-minded entrepreneurs the can network with for support, to source information and to build their supply chain.
Currently available in Spanish, an English-language version of DreamBuilder will launch later this fall.
DreamBuilder is based entirely in the cloud. This means that the program can be accessed through any internet connected computer. The student doesn’t need to own a computer, only have access to one. She can work on the DreamBuilder program any time of day, from any location. And the modular structure of DreamBuilder means that she can do as much or as little at a time as she wishes.
The Dreambuilder Methodologies
Alma, a fictional woman entrepreneur, introduces business concepts in a conversational and relatable tone. Alma shares examples from her own business, making the information practical and relevant.
By using Telenovela (soap opera) dramatizations in the Spanish version and episodic animations in the English version, DreamBuilder portrays each concept in action, demonstrating smart solutions to common challenges. Testimonials from successful women entrepreneurs reinforce each message.
Participants get to practice each concept by completing exercises, games, and activities. Fun and interactive activities ensure that the learner fully understands the concepts.
Throughout DreamBuilder, the learner is asked questions about her own business idea, applying the concepts of the course. Her answers are fed into the innovative Business Plan Generator which will create the first draft of her business plan at the end of the program.
