This Year's Theme: Elevar
The chosen theme for this year's Hispanic Heritage Month is "Elevar," meaning "rise" in Spanish. It is a fitting theme considering the challenges faced by the venture capital and startup industry this year. We aim to celebrate our Hispanic heritage and acknowledge our community's resilience in the face of economic hardships and industry setbacks.
The theme of "Elevar" serves as a reminder of the potential and untapped talent within our community. It reflects the collective efforts and accomplishments of Hispanic entrepreneurs and investors who have refused to be deterred by challenges. Let us come together to honor our Hispanic heritage, celebrate the achievements of our community, and embrace the spirit of "Elevar" as we recognize this community that continues to rise and shape the future of the venture capital and startup industry.
