Background

About Us

We are about celebrating and elevating the Latina entrepreneurial voice and driving transformational change in our local communities of Los Angeles, with a focus on the East and South side.

What we say has value and worth. Latina entrepreneurs commit everyday to building wealth for their family and communities. It’s time we paid attention.  

We do this by focusing on 3 main services:

Elevating the Latina voice through monthly podcast highlights with local Latina rising entrepreneurs and IG lives about topics and resources that support our communities. 

Creating a community of Latina entrepreneurs and allies to share resources and information that will drive business growth and provide a trusted network of support and encouragement through our: Latina Biz Directory, Quarterly BELLA community gatherings and quarterly capacity building workshops.
