Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month with Resources for Business Owners

A Brief History of National Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15th-October 15th is National Hispanic Heritage Month. The National Archives cites that “the observation began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988.” National Hispanic Heritage month is a month dedicated to honoring “the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries.”

The Growing Success of Hispanic Business Owners

The number of Hispanic-owned businesses has been steadily growing in the United States during the last few years. In fact, a recent study found that over the last decade, the number of Hispanic business owners in the U.S. has grown by 34% while the overall number of business owners grew just 1%. The same study found Hispanic-owned businesses contributed roughly $500 billion to the economy in annual sales.

Whether you’re a seasoned Hispanic business owner or just starting out, the following resources can provide you with support and useful information for your small business.

  • Hispanic Association of Small Businesses (HASB)

“The Latino Entrepreneurship Roundtable is a collective of individuals from all corners of the U.S. who share a passion for Latino/Hispanic culture and heritage.
