Alexander's story

I am an naturalized American citizen, and I am also a proud immigrant from Venezuela! Many Hispanic entrepreneurs in this country are like me: economically disadvantaged immigrants who came to the U.S. to pursue the American Dream. Many were fleeing difficult situations at home like dictatorships in Venezuela or Cuba; civil wars in Colombia, Nicaragua, or El Salvador; drug cartel violence and economic crisis in Mexico; or natural disasters like Puerto Ricans after Hurricane Maria. Whatever our motivation, we have come to the U.S. and quickly learned that starting a business is often our best chance to achieve that dream.
