Vanessa Faura, Outreach Director from The LIBRE Institute in North Carolina, released the following statement:
“We are very excited to be hosting this event in Charlotte. North Carolina was recently ranked among the top 10 states with the greatest number of women owned businesses – which are growing by leaps and bounds across the country. Hispanic women, especially, represent a large portion of this growth in entrepreneurialism – with Latinas accounting for 17 percent of all women-owned businesses, and nearly 600,000 employees. We’re encouraged by this progress – with1.4 million Hispanic women-owned businesses in the U.S. – and we look forward to having an impactful event full of insight into building your very own successful business.”
