2021 State of Latino Entrepreneurship Forum
On behalf of Stanford Graduate School of Business and Latino Business Action Network, Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative is pleased to invite you to join us for the virtual 6th Annual State of Latino Entrepreneurship Forum.
As we consider pathways to rebuild the United States economy amid COVID-19, Latinos play a prominent role in recovery. Latino-owned businesses are the fastest growing business segment in the United States. Over the last 10 years, the number of Latino-owned businesses has grown 34% compared to just 1% for all others. How are these businesses coping with the devastating impacts of COVID-19, and what pre-pandemic barriers are enduring?
Join us for our 6th annual State of Latino Entrepreneurship Forum, where the SLEI research team will reveal their latest findings from their annual survey of 3,500 white-owned businesses and 3,500+ Latino-owned businesses, in addition to their time-series pulse survey data from March, June, and September. We will also hear from a panel of successful Latino business owners and leaders who will share their first-hand experience with navigating the pandemic, acquiring capital, and discuss the challenges and opportunities facing Latino entrepreneurs today.
