DALLAS – The U.S. Small Business Administration will host a virtual “Hispanic Business Summit” in collaboration with Associate Administrator of the Office of Entrepreneurial Development, Allen Gutierrez, on Wednesday, Sept. 30th beginning at 2:00 p.m. CST.
This free event will connect Hispanic entrepreneurs from five states to inspire and empower each other by reflecting on the stories and experiences of successful Hispanic businesses, as well as hosting an informative and interactive discussion forum.
The event will open with remarks from our special guest and follow up with an overview of SBA lending programs, SBA lenders, and tips for success. We’ll be following up with an overview of free resources available from SBA partners. Throughout the event, we will be sharing success stories from Hispanic owned business who found ways to thrive with the assistance of the Paycheck Protection Program loans and SBA Resource Partners. The event will close out after an opportunity for questions and answers from attendees.
“The SBA is excited to not only celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month,” said SBA South Central Regional Administrator Justin Crossie, “we are especially excited to highlight these successful businesses and share their stories so that others can be inspired to do the same. These businesses are the backbone of the American economy and by finding ways to be successful, especially in these trying times, they’re not only saving business, they’re saving thousands of American jobs.”
