“I believe that the work they do for the city is of the utmost importance because it’s a support and another pillar that is part of the network for us here in Chattanooga. We all have an important role to play, the government, community members, business owners and an organization like La Paz, assembles perfectly with every need a Latino entrepreneur has in Chattanooga.”

“La Paz Chattanooga’s name carries weight as a connector
and endorser. They have the trust of the Latino community and as a
business owner, it was important for us to have their endorsement to grow our business. They are consistently supporting the Latino entrepreneur through workshops, panels, networking events, referrals and may other
ways. As a Latino business owner, it is invigorating to see an organization whose interest align well with the Latino business community and entrepreneurs.” 

“My experience with La Paz Chattanooga has been
unforgettable and I have seen my business referrals grow substantially
since becoming engaged and involved with them. I was humbled when I
was recognized as an honoree in 2016 at the Latino Leadership Awards
ceremony and received the Chattanooga’s Choice Award.”
