NBC4 and Telemundo Forum on The Power of Latino Purchasing Power

• The purchasing power of the Hispanic community has grown rapidly to $2.6 trillion in 2020
• The Hispanic community is the eighth-largest economy in the world, fueled by 61 million Latinos living in the United States
• Hispanic-owned businesses are growing at a rate three times the national average compared to non-Hispanic-owned enterprises
• Latinos opened 86% of all new American small businesses from 2007-2012
• Latina-owned businesses are the fastest-growing segment of women-owned enterprises in the United States.
• Companies in the U.S. that fail to process this data could leave over $300 million dollars any given day on the table when it comes to addressing with proper marketing outreach strategies this segment of the population.
