The JUPEMA Entrepreneurship Programme

Implementation year

The JUPEMA Entrepreneurship (JUPEMA Emprende) programme is a service provided by Costa Rica’s Pension and Retirement Board of the National Teachers’ Union (Junta de Pensiones y Jubilaciones del Magisterio Nacional – JUPEMA). It was started at the end of 2022, with the philosophy of providing resources for entrepreneurship training and consultation to our members. Its aim is to improve the intellectual, emotional and material skills of participants, positively impacting their quality of life on the basis of the principles and values of the social and solidarity economy.

The entrepreneurship support service is accessible to all members who are interested in designing, developing or promoting personal or group ventures, as long as there is a level of compatibility between the maturity of the project and the services offered by JUPEMA. This must be viable and compatible for both parties and of value to beneficiaries.
