“Participating in the Latincouver Pitch Fest was a truly enchanting experience. The event’s elegant atmosphere, well-organized structure, and inspiring speakers created a memorable setting. As a vendor, my stand offered great visibility, providing an excellent platform to showcase my company. The networking opportunities were invaluable, resulting in impactful connections that will undoubtedly contribute to the growth of my brand.

This event opened my eyes to the strength of our Latin community and the incredible resources Latincouver provides for Latin entrepreneurs. From my first-time participation, I was inspired by the powerful connections made and the supportive environment. For Latin women entrepreneurs, this event is not just a platform; it’s a doorway to inspiration and empowerment. It offers a supportive community that fosters growth, collaboration, and the courage to explore new possibilities despite the challenges immigrants may face.

Latincouver Pitch Fest is a must for anyone seeking a vibrant, empowering, and enriching experience in the world of Latin entrepreneurship.”

Stefanie Henderlin - Mangata Apothecary

“Being a part of the Latinfest pitch night was both fun and challenging. It grew my brand awareness, boosted my confidence, and fueled my up and coming growth. I was able to cover fees for a large trade show as well as pay to add a wholesale portal to my website.

Thank you for welcoming me to this event.”

Testimony about your experience at LBCN:

As a guest speaker with LBCN, I felt supported to create a presentation around pivoting your business that would directly speak to the entrepreneurial mindset which I feel is a key aspect of being a successful business owner. LBCN was very professional in creating a colorful advertisement for the event and I was so pleased to share this through my network. The event itself was well attended and participants felt comfortable to share and ask questions which made the experience interactive and engaging. LBCN staff were organized, efficient and friendly and I felt look after every step of the way.

Manuel Banales

Entrepreneur

México

Tell us something about you:

I was born and raised in Mexico, where I studied law in Guadalajara, Jalisco. This permitted me to become aware of the fact that business relationships are what makes up most of organized society. My passion is to create businesses catered to the current demand of society. However, my biggest passion is to create healthy and diverse businesses by always maintaining the customer as my number one priority.

Testimony about your experience at LBCN:

Being an active member of LCBN has permitted me to have access to a large data base of other entrepreneurs and a vast amount of companies which each specialize in different mercantile niches. This has enabled our company (Western Canada Education Services) to become well-known amongst the Latin community in Canada. This, in effect, has given us the opportunity to position ourselves effectively in Latin America.

Rosa Maria Delgado

Tell us something about you:

Rosa has been in Canada since 1999, and previous to her current business as an Insurance and Mutual Fund agent, had a successful career in Corporate Finance in the Tech Industry.

Rosa’s mission is to teach new Canadians the ABCs of personal finances and help them implement a financial plan to achieve their goals. Rosa truly believes all new Canadians from Latin America and elsewhere have the skills, knowledge, and dedication to succeed professionally in Canada. Rosa’s job is to guide them to make the most of their finances, following the premise: “It does not matter how much you make, but how much you keep”

Testimony about your experience at LBCN:

LCBN was a great platform to launch my business. When I first decided to turn my part-time business into my new mission and long-term career path, I started attending LCBN’s monthly breakfasts. These networking events were paramount in helping me meet other professional members in the Latin community and create a brand for myself.

I would highly recommend you become part of LCBN to fast-start your business, and become part of the Latin-American business community.
