Grants and Loans: Hispanic Heritage Month

Tue, Sep 17 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, join us as we share opportunities for small business owners of the Hispanic, Latino, Latina, Latinx Community, as well as general funding options.

There are an estimated 4.65 million Hispanic, Latino, Latina, Latinx owned businesses in the U.S., the fastest-growing segment of U.S. small businesses.

Small Business owners of the Hispanic, Latino, Latina, Latinx Community have been responsible for approximately 50% of net new small business growth between the years of 2007–2017.

Even so, Hispanic, Latino, Latina, Latinx Small Business Owners are systemically underfunded across all sources of capital. Between 2020-21 the average loan size was $34,125 less than non-Latino-owned firms.

We will be sharing current grants, micro-loans and other funding options to help Hispanic, Latino, Latina, Latinx entrepreneurs thrive.

Please Note: Zoom links are not automatically sent with registration confirmation emails. Check your inbox/junk folders for a second email.

A recording will be provided to all who attend.
