Latina Style Business Series

On behalf of LATINA Style Magazine, we would like to invite SHPE to participate in the Seattle LATINA Style Business Series.
LATINA Style Inc. is proud to present the following partnership opportunity for the 2016 Business Series Tour. This interactive business development program brings together Latina business owners with the key corporations and government agencies that provide the goods and services needed by those outstanding entrepreneurs to create or expand their business. Over 32,000 Latina entrepreneurs have participated in the Series since its inception in 1998.

The program covers a wide range of topics including: access to capital; strategic sales & marketing strategies; professional, technology, and communications services; corporate & federal procurement opportunities; and so much more. The seminar is a one-day event that includes an exhibit area with a networking breakfast, panel sessions, Latina Entrepreneur Award luncheon with a keynote speaker, and a networking reception (held the night before and by invitation only). Each participant is given a commemorative gift bag which will include items from our sponsors and partners. An excellent opportunity to reach the growing Hispanic market! Here is the link to our website with more information on what our Business Series does and how it affects the Latina community. (
