First-ever launch your business in a day workshop to be hosted in the MIYB Space and co-sponsored by IDEA, Latino Startup Alliance Central Coast and Kapor Center for Social Impact —
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – September 26 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – In an effort to support the number of Latinas in business specifically in the tech sector, Latina Startup Tour (LST) is traveling across the US to bring business tools and concepts to this underserved community. LST is teaming up with MIYB Spaces and co-sponsored by IDEA (EconAlliance), Latino Startup Alliance (LSA) Central Coast and Kapor Center for Social Impact to bring this curriculum on Saturday, October 4th 2014 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will be hosted by MIYB Spaces at located at 429 E. Main St., Santa Maria, CA 93454. The workshop initiative will focus on introducing Lean Startup Methodology, with practical tools, tips and business model canvas exercises.
“I am incredibly excited about going to Santa Maria to teach the fastest growing segment of business owners: Latinas!” said Tech Entrepreneur Deldelp Medina, Co-founder of Avion Ventures. “I believe that our solutions in technology will not come from others but from our communities. We want to teach Silicon Valley methods that have helped larger companies learn how to serve their customers. The best part is that you don’t have to have a tech venture to learn, if you are using your phone, tablet or computer for business you can benefit”
The workshop will focus on fun and dynamic business methods that will enable you to acquire new customers and grow your business. Participants will use these skills to bring their unique business ideas to life. Participating cities have been Oakland and San Francisco, CA and Tampa, FL. Santa Maria is the 4th stop, with Boston, MA and San Marcos, TX following.
“Santa Maria is home to a rising hotbed of inspiring entrepreneurial activity.” said Jose Huitron, Co-Chair, EconAlliance (IDEA) and Central Coast Chapter Director of the LSA. “We are excited to host the Latina Startup Tour and expand the pool of resources for innovative thinkers and do our part to further the Latina power shift that is taking the nation by storm.”
“As a female entrepreneur and founder of MIYB Spaces, I am honored to support the Latina Startup Tour’s visit to Santa Maria. I am extremely proud of the work we are doing locally – as we work together to build a vibrant, inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem that truly represents who we are as a community. The mere fact that Santa Maria was selected as one of only 8 cities nationwide for this campaign is truly exciting, but the fact that MIYB Spaces has the opportunity to host such an amazing group who are dedicated to the empowerment of Latinas and women in general as they launch their own businesses – is beyond words – I am so honored! To all the planners, presenters, coordinators of the Latina Startup Tour – I say congratulations and thank you!!! To the attendees – I say lucky you (us)! And to our community – I say WOO HOO!!! We are truly special and the world is starting to recognize us for who we are!” Anne L. Cremarosa.
