First and foremost, however, Latin Business Today is a forum for the exchange of ideas, and for collaboration. Readers will gain perspective and insight through dialog with one another, as well as from our rich editorial offerings. The latter will include comprehensive coverage across a broad range of relevant subject areas, in addition to coverage of innovators and achievers.

Our emphasis on mentoring and empowerment was inspired by the life work of Les “Coach” Fernandez, founder and executive director of EduCage, a ground-breaking alternative educational program for at-risk youth established in Westchester County, New York, in the 1960s.

We will continue work on two ancillary Latin Business magazine properties: the Latin Scholarship Fund, which provides tuition assistance to deserving Latino college students, and the Latin Business Spirit Awards, an annual awards gala honoring standout Latino professionals and entrepreneurs.

The Latin Business Today multi-platform will evolve with the marketplace and its readership, and we encourage you to provide regular feedback.  We are very excited about our collective future. Thank you for your support.
