How Business Process Outsourcing Companies Help Hispanic Entrepreneurs
Here’s some news that the Hispanic community will certainly be proud of: According to a joint report by the Partnership for a New American Economy and the Latino Donor Collaborative, the number of Hispanic entrepreneurs in the country has grown tremendously over the last two decades, ballooning from just 577,000 in 1990 to over 2 million in 2012.
In fact, so big is this growth that the number of Latino entrepreneurs grew by 71.5% despite the last decade’s recession, while the number of U.S.-born, non-Hispanic entrepreneurs dropped. Even better, this trend poses a positive impact on the economy; as more businesses are established, more job opportunities arise.
Fortunately, today’s Hispanic businessmen have plenty of successful compatriots to look up to, such Betro Perez, founder of Zumba Fitness, and Maria Contreras-Sweet, founder of ProAmérica Bank. Hispanic entrepreneurs have found success in many industries, with administrative/support, construction, and healthcare leading the way.
