About our Research

Our research effort, in collaboration with Stanford University, includes a series of studies examining the characteristics of successful Latino entrepreneurs, key dimensions of the Latino entrepreneurial process, and characteristics of the ecosystem unique to Latino entrepreneurs. Stanford University professors and staff conducted the primary research and we are building ties with other university researchers to support additional studies.
