Evidence abounds: Hispanics are the future of America’s business community. With a start-up rate three times the national average, there are an estimated 3.2 million Hispanic-owned businesses across the country – and growing. These businesses create jobs and contribute in excess of $486 billion to the American economy.
The USHCC works tirelessly on behalf of our nation’s Hispanic business men and women, that together play a critical role in broadening the prosperity of our country. While the USHCC advocates for business owners who happen to be of Hispanic descent, we are first and foremost American businesses; every tax bill we pay, every job we create, every product we manufacture and every service we provide goes to benefit the American economy.
The Hispanic business community’s strength comes from the diverse talents and the unrivaled entrepreneurial spirit of our men and women. Whether they arrived to our shores with visions of attaining the American dream, or are first-generation business owners honoring the dreams of their parents; the life stories of these Hispanic entrepreneurs are profound, and serve as a strong modern-day case for America’s claim as the “Land of Opportunity.”
The USHCC believes that America’s core values of hard work, contribution, innovation and imagination are foundational to the millions of businesses it represents. These entrepreneurial men and women are proud of their Hispanic roots, and even prouder to be Americans. Our nation’s Hispanic business community is doing everything it can —both in word and in deed— to preserve America’s free market economy and our way of life.
The USHCC actively promotes the economic growth and development of Hispanic entrepreneurs and represents the interests of 3.2 million Hispanic-owned businesses across the United States that together contribute in excess of $468 billion to the American economy each year. It also serves as the umbrella organization for more than 200 local Hispanic chambers and business associations in the United States and Puerto Rico. Follow us on Twitter @USHCC.
