Welcome to the Brown Table: On Latinx Entrepreneurship
Antonio sits down with Mark Madrid, Ana Reyes, and Nathalie Huerta
In our first episode, Antonio Tijerino sits down for a roundtable - or “brown table” as he likes to call it - discussion with the Associate Administrator of the US Small Business Administration Mark Madrid, and other Latinx small business owners, including a recipient of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation's Creciendo Con TikTok small business grant, to discuss how Latinx entrepreneurship continues to play a vital role in the US’s economic recovery. Together, they share real-life experiences as small business owners, provide recommendations for financing, and share tips for navigating a healthy work-life balance.
The rate of acceptance for the first round of PPP's was half for latinos.
