Business Accelerator Program - Application Opens June 1, 2021


The U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) and Wells Fargo in partnership with the LA Latino Chamber of Commerce and six other Chambers nationwide are launching an accelerator program design to help small scalable Hispanic Business Enterprises (HBE) "AVANZAR" or "advance" to take their business to the next level.

The five month accelerator program will help participating HBE's learn the skills they need to become stronger business owners and help scale their small businesses to eventually become an enterprise. Each class will be instructed by a subject matter expert in their respective field.  The topics are targeted to help participants overcome their biggest obstacles and to apply knowledge immediately to their business.  

Throughout the Avanzar Program, the local organizations will track and monitor certain performance metrics with the Hispanic Business Enterprises (HBD's) including jobs created, access to capital and access to contract opportunities.

Businesses accepted to this program will be announced.

The start date of the program is scheduled for the summer of 2021.
