Latina Entrepreneur Academy
The academy will provide a series of informational sessions on various topics that will better prepare women entering the world of entrepreneurship. Through this initiative, we hope to nurture this entrepreneurial spirit and provide support to driven Latinas who seek to launch and/or expand business endeavors.
Thanks to three generous funders, the Coca-Cola Foundation, the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation, and the National Disability Institute powered by the SBA, LULAC is able to host three different cohorts for the 2022-2023 cycle.
In partnership with the Coca-Cola Foundation for the fourth year in a row, LULAC launched the Summer 2022 LEA cohort running from June 2022 to November 2022. Eleven sites throughout the United States and Puerto Rico were awarded and are helping Latina entrepreneurs in their community.

LULAC and the National Disability Institute, funded in part by the Small Business Administration, partnered together to bring the Fall 2022 LEA cohort running from August 2022 to November 2022.

Two sites were selected to be a part of this pilot cycle in the D.C., Maryland, and Virgina area. To learn more about what these sites are doing, please click HERE or visit LULAC.org/ndi_lea.
