San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
The Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce has joined The LIBRE Initiative to support Hispanic Family-owned businesses to become more prosperous.
On March 20 the LIBRE Initiative is going to host the "Hispanic Family-Owned Business Forum: Strategies on Managing Your Business and Your Family" in San Antonio and the Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce is going to be there to support the event.
"Almost 90 percent of Hispanic entrepreneurs say they started their business as a way to provide financially for those closest to them - and Hispanic family owned business are growing at twice the national average" said Michael Barrera, LIBRE National Director of Coalitions and Entrepreneurship. "This event will help people navigate issues specific to family owned business and inform them about how to plan for succession, obtain financing, and deal with questions like health care, which can be critical to business success."
The LIBRE initiative is on a mission to equip the Hispanic community with the tools they need to be prosperous. A great deal of Hispanic family-owned businesses don't have an online presence, and need access to marketing and business resources. The Internet has changed everything. That includes the way we do business. From online shopping carts to blogs, from social marketing to a range of other online business resources, there are plenty of opportunities for business owners to boost their competitiveness via the Internet.
Actually taking advantage of these opportunities can be challenging, though. It is our mission at the Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce to help our members leverage the remarkable resources made available by the Internet, and to boost their own competitive edge. In particular, we are passionate to help family owned businesses within the Hispanic community improve their own online visibility and success. That's the reason why we are supporting the Hispanic Family-Owned Business Forum in San Antonio.
"We are committed to family owned businesses and entrepreneurs. We truly love small business owners and are passionate for the ongoing success of Hispanic-owned companies, in all industries and across the United States. That’s why we make membership, including a full range of basic services, available completely for free. We are the only Hispanic business association of our kind to do this, and it is entirely because of our true zeal for seeing Hispanic businesses thrive on the Internet and in the communities where they are based," said Tayde Aburto, Founder of the Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce. "The Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce is a social enterprise, using the power of business for social good. Our business model allows us to provide thousands of Hispanic family-owned businesses a free platform to connect, build business relationships and grow their business."
