With a mission of helping start, sustain, and grow Hispanic-owned businesses to achieve community prosperity, José Alvarez was tapped to open the Charlotte office of Prospera. And the Queen City is a perfect place to be doing this vital work; according to two 2017 studies commissioned by Prospera, North Carolina is home to 35,000 Hispanic-owned businesses (a 64.5% increase from 2007-12), more than half are in Charlotte and Raleigh, and they have generated nearly $2.9 billion in sales and receipts across the state. Join us at “Zoomapalooza III” on Friday, June 5, as José shares his take on our global theme of “Insecure.” As always, tickets will be FREE and available at https://creativemornings.com/talks/zoomapalooza-iii-revenge-of-the-fifth at 9:00 a.m. sharp on Monday, June 1. Mark your calendar and set your alarm – we want you in the Zoom Room with us! #CMinsecure
