Leveraging Entrepreneurship Programs to Empower Latino Communities

In the summer of 2019, Small Business Majority partnered with Los Angeles groups including the Coalition for Responsible Community Development and Youth Policy Institute to launch entrepreneurship programs for low- and moderate-income communities in Spanish. Through this panel, we’ll share a replicable model for implementation and findings from our cohorts. One cohort was designed to reach undocumented entrepreneurs and small business owners in South Los Angeles while the other cohort connected with Latina women seeking financial literacy education through a Family Source Center to entrepreneurship opportunities.
