The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) Foundation has partnered with the Kauffman Foundation to celebrate and empower female entrepreneurs through the At the Table Entrepreneurship Competition. Betty Manetta, President & CEO of Argent Associates, Gail M. Smith, Co-Chairman & Founder of Abbene Smith Gold LLC (ASG), and Yamila Constantino Mendez, President of Dinero Y Mas were selected as winners during the 2014 USHCC National Convention.
“While Hispanic entrepreneurs are opening businesses at an unmatched rate, Latinas are leading our community’s growth by starting new enterprises at a rate of four to one when compared to their counterparts,” USHCC President & CEO said Javier Palomarez. “Through our At The Table program, the USHCC Foundation is providing women entrepreneurs the resources and networks they need to continue spurring job creation, innovation, and economic development nationwide. We look forward to reporting the progress of this year’s winners and celebrating their collective contributions.”
