Belo Horizonte’s City Hall established a partnership with the Shopkeepers’ Syndicate of Belo Horizonte (Sindilojas). Both institutions opened vacancies for a free on-line entrepreneurship course directed to the capital’s trade sector. The initiative is a strategy to minimize the economic impact brought by the pandemic to the city’s merchants. Through the training offered, the entrepreneurs will be able to implement their e-commerce and expand their selling prospects. The course is divided in three modules, introducing the digital scene through its most used tools, practical methods to on-line sales and product operationalization.
