The surge of entrepreneurship is primarily from the Latino community, who are pioneering immigrant entrepreneurship. Despite challenges, they’ve proven their adaptability and resilience. Their unique strategies and innovative ideas could potentially transform industries and inspire future entrepreneurs.
