In downtown Los Angeles, this event will serve as the official launch of the NextGen Latinos initiative. The audience will secure a good understanding of the various “lending buckets” available to entrepreneurs depending on their goals and current business life cycle. Panelists will include representatives from FinTech, Micro-Lending, Certified Development Company (CDC’s), Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI’s), Venture Capital and middle market lending institutions. Additionally, entrepreneurs with experience accessing these “lending buckets” will share their personal tips and lessons learned. 150 business leaders and entrepreneurs are expected to attend. The panel will be live-streamed on social media channels.
The objective of the first NextGen event is to grow Latino-owned companies through financial education, planning, and funding.
