Emerging Entrepreneurs

Emerging Entrepreneurs is Hispanic Unity’s Small Business program. Hispanic Unity recognized more than a dozen years ago the need for entrepreneurship education and support for many who are looking to start or reinvent their current businesses. To this end, Hispanic Unity redesigned the program in 2012 and partnered with the experts of Broward SCORE to provide a comprehensive program based on Broward SCORE’s 5 Simple Steps model for starting and running a successful business.


  • Hundreds of potential and existing business owners have attended the Broward SCORE/HUF program and learned about:
    • Developing their Business Concept
    • Marketing Your Business
    • Financial Plans for Your Business
    • How to Move Forward to Start the Business – “Go or No Go Decision”
  • The Emerging Entrepreneurs Program expanded in 2014 and now includes a broad range of support including, but not limited to: sales, marketing, business plans, QuickBooks, social media, etc.
