“The reality is that Latinas are the worst represented on corporate boards. I think the number is 1 or 2%. Latinos generally, I don't even think we hit the 5% combined. And we're 18% of the population. And to me, what company is in an industry that is not going to have to address our market and its unique features? It just doesn't exist. So why shouldn't there be a voice that understands this market there."
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we welcome Adela Cepeda, Chair of Angeles Investors whose mission is, "To find, fund and grow the most promising Hispanic and Latinx ventures."
We talk about the hottest emerging ventures, from Canela Media to Encantos, the importance of diversifying board representation and how you can get involved in angel investing to make a difference, while making a return.
