The Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of NJ (SHCCNJ) received a $100,000 grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation for its new Latina Entrepreneurship Training Series (LETS) program.
The grant will be used toward bilingual business development and educational programs to be launched in 2020 particularly tailored to the needs of female Hispanic business owners.
This new program is a natural extension of the successful Hispanic Entrepreneurship Training Program (HETP), which will be entering its sixth year in 2020.
Developed and run by successful female Hispanic business owners and professionals, the LETS program responds to the growing needs of Hispanic women entrepreneurs who have started a business, yet lack the appropriate resources, tools, connections and support systems necessary to expand and scale it up. The goal of the LETS program is to offer business education, individual coaching, mentorship, a supportive community and an expanded network of contacts for Latina business owners – AT NO COST.
“We are grateful that Wells Fargo and the Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey have partnered on this important and timely initiative to provide entrepreneurs classes led by bilingual subject matter experts on a variety of topics vital to building and fortifying a business,” indicated Carlos Medina, SHCCNJ CEO & President.
