August 11, 2014 – Los Angeles, CA – It’s no coincidence Eric Garcetti, Mayor of Los Angeles, speaks Spanish.

Looking to further improve the lives of the same Hispanic community, Mayor Garcetti will attend the next event organized by Su Socio de Negocios and El Clasificado as the guest of honor.

“This dynamic event will connect people with small business experts who can help them open their doors and create jobs, pumping new blood into the dynamic Latino entrepreneurial spirit here in Los Angeles,” said Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti.

Martha de la Torre, President and CEO of El Clasificado and Su Socio de Negocios, will be responsible for delivering the welcoming remarks. De la Torre has stressed the importance of motivating and educating Latino entrepreneurs with events like this, so that the small business owners can continue to be one of the main economic drivers of the nation. “Our efforts to help the Hispanic community began 26 years ago and thanks to our partnership with the Mayor’s Office we are doing it to an even larger scale.”

The speakers will address various opportunities for attendees to improve their existing business and to generate larger amounts of revenue.
