Access Latina is the first multimarket accelerator program designed to help Latina business owners in various sectors reach their entrepreneurial and economic potential through capital and resource investment.
As part of their accelerator promotional campaign, they invited entrepreneurship professor John Mullins to host a business webinar based on Mullins’ most recent book, “The Customer-Funded Business: Start, Finance, or Grow Your Company with Your Customers’ Cash,” in which he shows entrepreneurs how to get customers, instead of investors, to fund their businesses.
Entrepreneurs who register at www.accesslatina.org by Dec. 6 at midnight will receive an email with a link to the webinar, which will be available for a limited time only for Access Latina participants.
Access Latina also announced that it will accept applications to the business competition that will award more than $100,000 in capital and resources through Dec. 11.
To be eligible, the applicants must own at least 20% share of businesses in the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math), social innovation and agriculture industries (including ag-farm and ag-tech) that are headquartered in New York, Washington, D.C., Florida and Puerto Rico. The accelerator also informed that it will review applications of businesses with annual revenue of at least $50,000.
Each winner will receive a $25,000 grant and a crowdfunding round, advanced education, publicity, mentoring and access to a high-profile network of professionals including entrepreneurs and investors.
“Investing in women’s economic development is a significant economic driver for any country,” said Access Latina co-founder Lucienne Gigante.
