Under the slogan “Learn, Connect, Succeed!” Latinas in Business Inc. has announced their 2018 Latina SmallBiz Expo and Pitch your Business Competition. The event will take place at the Hudson County Culinary Conference Center, 161 Newkirk St., Jersey City, NJ on November 8, 2018 from 12:00pm to 7:00pm.
Latinas in Business Inc., the national non-profit organization that advocates for the economic empowerment of the Latina working woman is joining efforts with the New Jersey Office of Business Opportunity (HC OBO) and Hudson County Community College (HCCC), both institutions co-hosting the event.
Keynote speaker will be Nathalie Molina Niño, founder and CEO of BRAVA Investments, and author of LEAPFROG, The New Revolution for Women Entrepreneurs(Tarcher Perigee, a Penguin Random House imprint). She is committed to delivering returns to investors while making a catalytic impact on women in the world. A technologist and coder by training, Nathalie is a consummate entrepreneur, and a storyteller at heart.
“Nathalie is an extremely accomplished Latina entrepreneur who led the launch of SELF MADE, the company, mobile app, learning platform and NY Times Best Selling book by Telemundo’s former Entertainment president, Nely Galan. We are extremely grateful for her generosity to participate at our Latina SmallBiz Expo this year, and bring her unapologetic vision for Latina entrepreneurs in the Northeast,” said Susana G Baumann, President and CEO, Latinas in Business Inc.
Mistress of Ceremony at the 2018 Latina SmallBiz Expo will be Jackeline Cacho, the Los Angeles two times Emmy Nominee journalist and producer of “Triunfo Latino,” the most popular educational show in the nation that features Latino leaders across the nation.
“Jackie Cacho is an internationally acclaimed Latina leader and a generous human being who tirelessly works at changing the narrative around Latinos in the US. She will be producing her ‘Triunfo Latino’ show during the event, and broadcast it in 40 cities around the country,” Baumann announced.
Latina small businesses in the region are the driving force of many markets such as beauty, retail, clothing, telephone services, food and beverage, financial services and many more.
“An estimated 5,824,300 women-of-color-owned businesses employ 2,230,600 people and generate $386.6 billion in revenues in the United States. However, numbers for Latinas grew faster than the average rate for businesses owned by other women of color: 172%, equaling 2.1 million Latina-owned businesses,” Baumann said “To celebrate the power of Latinas, we have assembled our most ambitious event ever. We are committed to raising the bar for Latinas and other minority women entrepreneurs who are standing strong and building community around them every day,” she added.
