Latinx Travel Club, a digital media company powered by Ventyour Inc., showcasing the beauty, power and diversity of Latinx people through a portfolio of travel, technology, music and other channels, will host its first Latinx Travel Summit October 15-17. , 2021, in Miami and Miami Beach.
Intended to connect, inspire and support Latinx entrepreneurs, the Summit evolved from the Latinx Travel Club’s primary mission of creating closer connections between Latinxes and their origins through travel, music, and cultural platforms.
âWe cultivate a community that empowers and recognizes Latinx entrepreneurs,â says Pablo Segarra, Esq., CEO of Latinx Travel Club. âAs the gathering of the youngest, most diverse and fastest growing populations in the world, we will celebrate the ingenuity and innovation of the Latinxes. Our summit will be the platform to connect businesses, founders, organizations and thought leaders who focus on millennials and millennials. â
The summit will highlight the economic and cultural impact of one of the world’s fastest growing, most diverse, and youngest populations, with approximately 23% of the Millennial population. âWe are often told that we are the minority, when in fact we are the majority of the Western Hemisphere,â says Michael Watson, co-founder of the Latinx Travel Club. The summit will focus on entrepreneurs, as Latinx small business owners are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States.
Miami due to its large Latin American and Caribbean population and the city’s growing reputation as the next tech hub made it the big winner to host the inaugural summit. âMiami is leading the way as more entrepreneurs and investors leave traditional tech cities to settle in emerging startup ecosystems,â Segarra continues. âThe city also has a vibrant LGBTQ community and a non-Hispanic Latinx diaspora community comprising Haitians, Brazilians and Jamaicans. We look forward to seeing them all represented at the Summit.
