Small businesses, particularly those which are Hispanic-owned, play a paramount role in job growth and the overall health of the U.S. economy. Yet, these companies often struggle to find the right capital partners to help them grow and create more jobs. USHCC is playing an important role to help Hispanic businesses scale, through strong cooperation with Capital providers and enablers, Corporate America (by understanding their needs and strategic direction), and talented business owners who can achieve scale and accelerated growth.
Join us in in this forum to hear about the solutions to this funding issue and how to create a solid capital structure for acquisitions and accelerated growth. We will discuss the policies and convenings federal agencies should support to increase market connectivity, funding and opportunities for our small and minority-owned business community. The discussion will feature topics like current economic research, financial policies and strategy, regulations, private sector opportunities to achieve scale and support economic development, and our work with USHCC partners through our Capital Initiative to promote scale and small business success.
