The Ford Driving Dreams Latina Entrepreneurs is a unique new initiative from Ford Motor Company and Ford Motor Company Fund that aims to strengthen and support Latina small-business owners.
The initiative will provide access to capital, educational resources, networking opportunities and other business development tools for Latina entrepreneurs. As minority-owned small businesses have been especially hard hit during COVID-19 and Hispanics have been disproportionally affected by the pandemic overall, the new initiative is designed to provide critical support for Latina-owned businesses—helping them overcome current challenges and develop plans for future growth.
The program is being implemented in collaboration with eMerge Americas and the National Development Council and is an extension of Ford Fund’s signature Ford Driving Dreams initiative that provides scholarships and educational resources for middle and high school students.
