Latino Innovators Pitch: Connecting innovation & Culture
On Oct. 3, I had the pleasure of co-hosting the 15th annual Maryland Hispanic Business Conference. This is the largest event in the region geared towards Hispanic businesses, where 700-plus business leaders, professionals, government and corporate partners connect.
It is a place where two worlds meet and connect to drive economic growth with the fastgrowing segment of the business community — Latino businesses, which are being established at 15 times the national average. Impressive, huh?
But these businesses remain small in revenue and they typically have less than 5 employees. So, large in numbers, small in dollars and profit.
