Latinos in the U.S. have 50X the growth rate of Non-Latino Businesses. These businesses represent $473 Billion in the U.S. economy and 2.3M employees across the U.S. Yet, VC backed firms' founders are 87% white and less than 1% are Latino. Recognizing the underserved market for VC's and the opportunity for Latinos is the first step. Awareness of existing and available programs across the U.S. including educational opportunities for Latino founders is the next step. The Stanford Latino Entrepreneur Leadership Initiative is just one example. This panel of Latino and Latina entrepreneurs will discuss this program and others available for Latino Entrepreneurs.
