The lack of enough Latinos graduating with engineering degrees and the few with an entrepreneurial talent are one of the biggest frustrations for the Hispanic organizations.
The founders of “Manos Accelerator” believe that Latinos need help to create a new robust generation of Latino entrepreneurs with programs that provides “hands-on” education, business resources, infrastructure, capital, and guidance for promising startup companies led by Latinos, moving them on to a fast track to success.
Edward Avila, Sylvia Flores and David Lopez founded “Manos Accelerator” to develop programs that identifies the needs for creating a new attitude to dramatically change the fact that less than 1% of the startups are founded by Latinos.
