It’s finally here, MI GENTE. Yes, it’s Friday y el cuerpo lo sabe, but I’m also talking about a special project that I’ve been cooking up over at Nasdaq.
Lyanne here, creator of Moneda Moves, and after months of planning, coordinating and pre-taping, I’m thrilled to present Nasdaq’s conference for Hispanic Heritage Month on Access to Capital in the Latinx Community. Thank you so much to the many lideres and speakers participating and joining our employee resource group, #AdelanteNasdaq to have these actionable discussions about dinero. This has been a labor of love but also of necessity —we need to talk access to capital from a personal to entrepreneurial space.
📅 Please MARK YOUR CALENDAR for THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14 for a FULLY VIRTUAL half day conference and REGISTER via link in bio. It’s free and I promise you, no te lo quieres perder.
🌎 Synopsis: Our community is a force not only in the US but also in the global economy. According to the Latino Donor Collaborative if U.S. Latinos were a country, we’d be the 8th largest GDP in the world. But access to capital is key for helping our community build generational wealth and help our companies grow.
Learn more from experts in personal finance, entrepreneurship and funding, including Latino Donor Collaborative’s Sol Trujillo, founder of SUMA Wealth Beatriz Acevedo, Investing Latina’s Jully-Alma Taveras, and many more during the conference.

Lessons from Facebook’s outage for small business owners: A Facebook outage earlier this week taking down Instagram and WhatsApp (owned by Facebook) down with it was a warning signal to some small business owners who rely greatly on the social media to advertise and earn sales. ABC 10News spoke with just a few small business owners about the impact. (Source: Vanessa Nevarez, ABC 10News-KGTV)
