Stats from Javier Palomarez, President and CEO of the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce during a luncheon I just attended:
- Hispanics are the fastest growing entrepreneurs.
- Hispanic businesses grew by 114% despite the dismal economy over the last 5 years.
- 52% of the growth in the business population is due to Latino/a Entrepreneurs
Mr. Palomarez shared this and other insights about the growth of Hispanic businesses and how they are bolstering the U.S. economy. Insightful information whether or not you’re a business owner.
