The Latino Chamber of Commerce of Dane County

Edgewood College will be welcoming the Latino Chamber of Commerce for their annual graduation ceremony that honors new business owners who have completed the Chamber’s incubator program, and who will officially launch their new businesses.

The graduation will take place Thursday, Dec. 13, 5-8 p.m. in the Anderson Auditorium.

Founded in 2003, the Latino Chamber of Commerce of Dane County represents the Latino and non-Latino business community in the greater Madison and surrounding cities.

“We are fortunate through our partnership with Dane County, the City of Madison and WEDC in making this program possible and celebrating the success of our newest entrepreneurs. These men and women demonstrate the face and spirit of our growing economy,” Jessica Cavazos, president and CEO of the Latino Chamber of Commerce, said in a statement. “Our goal is to continue increasing the growth and sustainability of startups, with a commitment to building our State’s Economic Ecosystem into the future.”

The Incubator program provides access to mentors and tailored content designed specifically around the individual businesses admitted to the incubator. “We value our relationship with Edgewood College for hosting this momentous event and are excited to see the next generation of incubator graduates and early-stage companies find success with this proven model,” said Jorge Antezana, Vice President of Development and a SCORE certified mentor, in a statement.

The Madison community is invited to attend the ceremony, and there is no admission charge.
