Celebrating the Power of Hispanic & Latino Entrepreneurs
From our October 2021 Newsletter:
A word from our Executive Director, Deyanira Zavala
This week, we wind down National Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month, a month-long celebration on the experience and imprints that Hispanic and Latinx culture leave on all of us. The Hispanic/Latinx cultural legacy is one of the reasons we found our way to this great city – from the Chican@ murals to the thriving businesses along Morrison Road, it felt like home. My summers with family working in their businesses shaped the person I am today and why spotlighting the resilience of Hispanic & Latinx businesses is so important to me. We are excited to share with you all a few ways you can continue to keep our community thriving, long after October 15th.
Entrepreneurs & Small Business: The Fabric of Community
One thing is certain – the Hispanic & Latinxs communities are not a monolith. But the strong practices & principles of community, family, and sharing are deeply woven into our everyday life. It is why so many turn to entrepreneurship and cooperative ownership as a path towards economic prosperity. However, access to capital still presents barriers and challenges.
Community Spotlight: Raices Brewery
Among the vibrant landscape of Hispanic and Latinx local businesses, check out Sun Valley-based Raices Brewery, where community and craft beer come together. With a small grant from Denver Arts & Venues, they were able to transform their space into a community hub.
