SomerCor President & CEO, Manny Flores, was interviewed on CBS 2 Chicago to discuss the World Business Chicago Black & Latino Excellence Investment Summit with program participant Overflow Coffee:

Manny also provided a live interview for Univision Chicago on the Summit, specifically emphasizing the impact for Latino entrepreneurs:

The Summit is a multi-phased effort that will provide counsel, connections to support including technical assistance, and ultimately, access to capital for Black and Latino-owned small businesses on Chicago’s South and West-Sides.

This pilot program will connect these business-owners with technical assistance resources and funding opportunities to help scale their operations. In tandem with the Mayor’s Office and other key partners, the Community Impact team’s objective is to challenge the access to capital gap and promote equitable economic development.
