This past month, we celebrated National Hispanic Heritage Month, a time to celebrate and recognize the culture, influence, and contributions of Latinx and Hispanic communities to the U.S. According to a recent study of the Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative, Latinx are starting businesses at a faster rate than all other demographic groups. Over the past ten years alone, the number of Latinx business owners grew 34% compared to a 1% growth for all other business owners (see full report). To celebrate this holiday, we featured our Latinx and Hispanic #EnvolveAwardWinners and shared useful resources for Latinx-owned businesses.
