Latino Entrepreneurship & the American Dream

  • The Newseum, Knight Broadcast Studio 555 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

Across the United States, Latino entrepreneurship is growing at a faster pace than small businesses owned by non-Hispanics. Yet Latino business owners face significant challenges when looking for capital and a skilled workforce.

What are leaders in government and industry doing to bridge this gap? How can barriers related to lending, training, and growth be eliminated? Hispanic millennials make up one of the youngest demographics in the nation and researchers have found that about 40 percent of Latino businesses are owned by millennials. What role can mentoring play in empowering these young entrepreneurs?

The Hill will convene policymakers, business owners and advocacy groups for a conversation about Hispanic small business ownership trends and the pursuit of the American dream.
