Virtual Forum on Supporting African American Entrepreneurship

Investment and Trade Opportunities between African American and Latin American Enterprises

Thursday, September 14 at 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. ET

The BPIA Business and Economic Development Committee continues its Virtual Forum series with this event, which seeks to provide a platform for a discussion around the investment and trade opportunities between US-based African American and Latin American enterprises.

In addition to exploring the macroeconomic and B2B trends, business opportunities and challenges, attendees will also benefit from hearing the personal experiences of Latin American entrepreneurs in the US and Latin America.

This event will feature:

Dr. Nanno Mulder will sketch an economic overview of Latin America, providing economic profiles of the topic countries, economic opportunities and challenges, and giving us a taste of some of UN-ECLAC’s programs in the region.

Dr. Edna Ramirez-Robles will provide an overview of the regional and bilateral trade/investment agreements/arrangements in the region, focusing on those between the U.S. and specific Latin American countries.

Dr. Luana Ozemela will share with us her experience as an entrepreneur in the region (Brazil), providing us with first-hand insights for U.S. entrepreneurs who want to invest in/start businesses in Latin America.

Ms Mariam Maldonado will share with us her experiences as a Dominican-American entrepreneur in the U.S. and provide us insights from someone from the topic region who is creating value and contributing to the U.S. economy.

Kholofelo Kugler, VP: Business and Economic Development, BPIA (Moderator)
