Latino Entrepreneur Day
In July, Green Business Leaders program staff joined Washington County-based organizations and businesses for the annual Emprendedor Latino event to celebrate the accomplishments of a growing Latino business community. The Empresas Small Business Development program , offered through Adelante Mujeres , helps Latino entrepreneurs develop successful and sustainable small businesses.
Please join us in congratulating these recently launched Latina-owned businesses that are contributing to our vibrant, local economy!
