Hispanics are the fastest-growing entrepreneurship segment in the US. This coincides with an entrepreneurship renaissance occurring in Latin America, which is perhaps the result of the rapid rise of the company-builder model, the lean-startup model, and the availability of private equity. Thus, “Tropicalized Entrepreneurs” – entrepreneurs from Latin and Central America – are becoming more prevalent.
While the US’ Silicon Valley gets its reputation as a hub of entrepreneurship, we want to discuss how to “fill the gaps” of funding and resources between here and the rest of the world, specifically, Central and Latin America.
Join Prospanica Austin – the Association of Hispanic Professionals – at Capital Factory – Austin’s “Center of Gravity for Entrepreneurship” – as we have a conversation with Estuardo Robles about the rise of entrepreneurship in Latin America.
Estuardo is a frequent speaker and adviser on entrepreneurship and economic development, specalised in US and Latin American markets. He has worked with companies such as Spiceworks, PureFresh and Nearsol, and has been featured in the New York Times, VentureBeat and Forbes Central America.
We hope you can join us!
