Hector Barreto is ready to help promote and advocate economic advancement and job growth for Latinos in America…
The Latino business leader and former administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration has announced the official launch of the Hispanic Business Roundtable Institute, a non-partisan, non-profit grassroots organization seeking to promote and advocate economic advancement and U.S. job growth in America.
“As a business owner, I see the potential and reward of investing in America and the contribution it makes to the economic growth of our nation,” said Barreto of the Hispanic Business Roundtable Institute. “We will actively work with leading Hispanic entrepreneurs, organizations and government officials to help create the environment for businesses to grow and thrive.”
The HBRTI, headquartered in Washington, D.C., will support national and regional based programs and studies that result in measurable social, economic and educational opportunities for those seeking and building the American Dream.
The HBRTI will advocate for the following: controlling the mounting deficit; creating an environment of less regulations and more competitiveness; access to quality healthcare and affordable costs; educating our children; and offering economic independence and stability to the Hispanic community.
“Small businesses drive job creation and economic development across the country,” said Barreto. “Hispanics account for more than three-million businesses in America today and they are starting those businesses at three times the national average. We know that Hispanics have the potential to change how America does business. However, for the U.S. economy to return to its growth potential, the private sector and policymakers need to focus their efforts. HBRTI will be that link to positively impact businesses and the economy, while also serving as a voice for Hispanic entrepreneurs.”
