In the United States, Latinas lead in the creation of small businesses six times faster than any other group and these businesses are helping fuel the United States economy (Hispanic Star, 2023). To help Latina business owners expand their businesses efficiently and effectively, The Hispanic Alliance for Career Enhancement (HACE) created a special cohort of our Mujeres de HACE Women's Leadership program.
This special cohort is called the Mujeres de HACE Women's Entrepreneurs Program. In this program, nationwide participants sharpen their entrepreneurial skills and gain access to resources to increase their business capacity. The comprehensive curriculum consists of culturally-relevant workshops on business planning, marketing, finance, leadership, and innovation. It includes theoretical knowledge and practical learning. The curriculum is delivered by experienced instructors. Participants learn best practices from Latina business experts and develop pitch presentations.
