It caught my attention that there is not a discussion around Hispanic lending / leveling the playing field for Hispanic entrepreneurs.
Latinos open new businesses at 3 times the rate of other population groups, mostly fueled by Latina entrepreneurship. Still, their businesses remain small due to increased barriers to funding and contracting opportunities. Given that Hispanics will make up for 30% of the US population in 2026 (as per the Census Bureau), I thought this topic is of major interest right now.
I am a Hispanic business owner and also the director of entrepreneurship for the Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of NJ (largest chamber in the State), and I run multiple entrepreneurship programs for them. I can be of support if you decide to move forward with this topic. Best, Valeria
