Female Entrepreneurs Lead Latin American Economy Forward

shutterstock_126761300A recent article published in Women2.0, written by Rania Anderson, Founder & President, The Way Women Work shed some interesting light on the Future of the Latin American economy and how it is being influenced and led by female leaders and entrepreneurs.

“The only thing that stabilizes markets is growth…[that] will come from the entrepreneurial sector, and most especially from the growth of women entrepreneurs” said Anderson. We were inspired by the countless examples she gave, showing how how the women entrepreneurs of the Latino community are leading their economy forward.

Anderson enlightenment began while she was in Argentina, meeting with several women entrepreneurs who were influential figures in a wide range of segments. Among these were Denise Abulafia, co-founder and CEO of Educatina, a Khan Academy equivalent in South America. Educatina has generated over 3000 education videos, helps over 300,000 students per month and continues to grow.

She went on to say that having a more formal business mentor is a relatively new practice in Latin America, but one that is expected to stick. This is among the many ways females are coming together in support for one another in the Latino community and strengthening their growing foundation of leadership.

Here at La Voz Marketing we are proud to see the influence and success that these female leaders are having on their community and economy as a whole.
