Now Open for Registration!

The Latina Entrepreneur Academy is a part of LULAC’s Women’s Empowerment (WE) Initiative designed to train, motivate, and inspire women, especially those of Hispanic descent, to build their own businesses or enhance their existing ones. Studies show that since 2013, 1 out of every 10 women-owned businesses are Latina. The Latino community has an entrepreneurial spirit that we see largely in local immigrant communities. Immigrant communities bring much of their culture through food, artisanal items such as clothing and art, and much more. Many individuals turn their passion and culture into businesses that provide many with comforts from home. Through this initiative, we hope to nurture this entrepreneurial spirit and provide support to driven Latinas who seek to launch and/or expand business endeavors.

The academy will provide a series of informational sessions on various topics that will better prepare women to enter the world of entrepreneurship. Through this initiative, we hope to nurture this entrepreneurial spirit and provide support to driven Latinas who seek to launch and/or expand business endeavors.

Stanford research conducted as part of the annual State of Latino Entrepreneurship report shows that over the past 10 years, Latinos have launched more small businesses than any other demographic, and now contribute nearly $500 billion to the economy in annual sales.
