WASHINGTON, May 31, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On June 15, The Latino Coalition (TLC), the leading, national non-partisan advocacy organization representing Hispanic businesses and consumers, will join forces with the Job Creators Network (JCN), to host the Small Business Rising Summit in the heart of Orange County.
Taking place at the Marriott Irvine Spectrum Hotel, the Small Business Rising Summit will be a one-day event dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs and strengthening the economy. The event will bring together hundreds of small-business owners from across the nation and abroad with influential leaders, chamber executives and government officials. The summit will serve as a platform to build professional and personal networks while also highlighting the public policy issues impacting business, including regulation, health care costs, and taxes.
"The Latino Coalition is very excited to be partnering with Job Creators Network for the Small Business Rising Summit in Irvine, CA," said Hector Barreto, TLC Chairman and former Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration. "JCN understands that the small-business sector is finally growing again, and this has terrific implications for the American economy – especially in communities that are in need of the unique economic opportunity offered by small-business ownership. Our strategic partnership will work to enhance the overall business, economic and social objectives of America's entrepreneurs and their employees."
"In March, we concluded a historic summit that featured President Trump, Labor Secretary Alex Acosta and Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, as well as bipartisan congressional representatives. We look forward to keeping the momentum going with this conference, focused on the new era of entrepreneurship," Barreto added.
"Job Creators Network advocates to protect the 85 million people who depend on the success of small business," said Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of JCN. "As the voice of Main Street, we are focused on providing business leaders and entrepreneurs with the tools to succeed. Our partnership with TLC will not only provide the small business sector a variety of development opportunities and strategies; it will promote policies for an economy that is growing, wages that are rising and job creation."
Seeking to empower the job creators of our nation, the summit will highlight how to build and improve small business development in the U.S. through a series of high-impact panels, breakout sessions, engaging influential speakers and networking opportunities.
