Gary Acosta Explores Closing Latino Wealth Gap with Powerhouse Guests

"I believe when Latino-led companies achieve scale it not only benefits the investors and employees of that company, it attracts more investment into Latino communities,” said podcast host Gary Acosta.

Today, entrepreneur and investor Gary Acosta has launched a new podcast, Govies, Plutes, & Gangsters, which explores the critical role that government policy, capital deployment, and entrepreneurship play in closing the Hispanic wealth gap in America.

"Latinos have the highest workforce participation rate and are driving growth in small business formations and homeownership but the wealth gap has remained large," said podcast host Acosta, Co-Founder & CEO of NAHREP, the country's leading Hispanic business organization, and Co-Founder of L'ATTITUDE, the preeminent event platform that celebrates the role of Latinos in the New Mainstream Economy. The podcast deploys an interview format and features some of the nation’s leading thought leaders and entrepreneurs who share their unique perspectives and experiences.

Guests include:

  • Award-winning music icon and industry legend Emilio Estefan, who reflects on lessons throughout his life, his world-famous family, and how his immigrant background fueled his relentless mindset for business.
  • On-Air Political Analyst for MSNBC and bestselling author Anand Giridharadas, who engages in a provocative conversation about some of the governmental headwinds that are impeding growth in homeownership and wealth-building for Latinos.
  • Entrepreneur and venture capitalist Laura Lucas, who discusses the importance of capital connections and the emergence of Latinas in the U.S. economy.
  • International business executive Sol Trujillo, who emphasizes the necessity of "running with" one's own ideas as he recounts his legendary career running three 50-billion-dollar corporations in the U.S., Europe, and Australia.

"I believe when Latino-led companies achieve scale it not only benefits the investors and employees of that company, it attracts more investment into Latino communities,” said Acosta. "Throughout my career, I have been privileged to spend time with some of the most successful business leaders in America. I am excited to begin sharing these powerful conversations with the public.”

Govies, Plutes, & Gangsters is now available on https://garyacosta.com/ and all major podcast platforms, including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and YouTube.
