The main objective of our chats is to change the narrative of American Latinx tech leaders in the US, and educate Silicon Valley on how expensive of an opportunity it is to ignore our leaders. 

We select special guests, not for the purpose of us meeting them (as most of us already have), but for them to meet us as a powerful group, and be exposed to the amazing stories of American Latinx VCs and founders like you:
- Investors in the biggest tech companies in the world
- 10+ American Latinx tech founders who run and/or have exited billion-dollar startups
- 40 top American Latinx founders who are in the process of doing so


Most of our special guests are excited to meet our group because it is their first time learning that American Latinx tech founders have exits in the billions and run over $120B in AUM. 

By participating as a co-host, you are significantly contributing to changing the narrative. It is also an opportunity to establish a strong relationship with the special guest from a position of value-add and leadership.
