About:

The Latino Flash Pitch seeks to foster connections, inspire learning, and make a community around Latino entrepreneurship and innovation.

A worldwide conference for Latino Entrepreneurs who are changing the world.

The world has changed, existing inequities have widened and for many first time Latino entrepreneurs, these changes have created even greater disparities in all areas of their lives and businesses. As one of the fastest-growing demographics of business owners in the US, Latino entrepreneurs are facing uncertain and challenging times ahead.

The Latino Flash Pitch Conference is a place of belonging. An opportunity to come together and help all of us move forward. We bring Hispanic entrepreneurs from all sectors and industries who are leading our community through uncertain times. Experts from different fields join us in a discussion on the most pressing needs and issues affecting Latino entrepreneurs today.

You’re invited to an online video conference for Latino Entrepreneurs. A conference in the truest sense—you’re here to meet other people, to dialogue and forge connections, to find the others who are ready and willing to join with you.

Come to a place of belonging

Join us for the premier live conference that centers on the experiences of Latino entrepreneurs in the US.

It all happens at your fingertips through video, face to face.

You will hear from thought leaders and experts in our community, people taking transformative action. Just as important, you’ll be able to engage digitally with us and people like you in an exciting exchange of ideas and experiences. That means you’re not alone, our strength is multiplied when we come together.

 

The conference runs for two days. It’s a powerful way to be inspired to do even more by people who want to come together and move towards prosperity for all.

What you’ll take away:

Access to a growing community that seeks to make a difference
Valuable knowledge on how to lead and adapt through uncertain times
Tools for connecting with resources and experts beyond the conference

Invite your boss, your colleagues, and your familia to sign up! Changemakers don’t just participate in a movement, they help build it. Be sure to bring others along on your journey and include them here in the next steps.
