Hispanic entrepreneurs are fueling our nation’s economic growth. In fact, Hispanic-owned businesses surpassed 4 million, contributing $661 billion in combined annual in 2015. Hispanic-owned businesses increased 15 times the national growth rate. In Maryland, our thriving community has more than 54,000 Hispanic business owners who are staunch economic contributors. Statistics show that Hispanics spent 1.5 trillion U.S. dollars in the retail and CPG market in 2015. The buying power is expected to increase to 1.7 trillion U.S. dollars by 2017. Products targeting the Hispanic population are seen as a great opportunity for retailers and CPG companies as Hispanics will represent approximately 28.6 percent of the total U.S. population by 2060. Hispanic entrepreneurs are America’s business future.
