GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) – Members of the LatinX community in central and western Nebraska had the chance on Saturday to take a step toward their dream of running their own businesses.
Budding entrepreneurs visited the Latino Small Business Conference on Grand Island. One of the conference organizers, Juan Sandoval said, with inflation and seemingly everything rising in price the day is important.
“Planning, going to a conference like this, having a mentor who will sit down with you and come up with a plan, that’s huge. It’s really about being proactive and getting the information as soon as they can,” Sandoval said.
LatinX’s business growth is largely centered around the Fourth Street area of Grand Island, and now Latin media is poised to move into the area, as Fiesta 94.5 and Telemundo Nebraska move in.
“Our office will be on Fourth Street, right in the heart of this growth, right in the heart of this community,” said Fiesta 94.5’s Jose Ramon Munoz. “We will also have a Telemundo office, which will have a journalist and we want to try to cover and meet all the needs of the community.”
Two more versions of the conference are scheduled to be held in Omaha and Norfolk in the coming weeks.
