Building On Strength – Cultivate and Cultivar Support City Entrepreneurs

Cultivate and Cultivar support City Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs and service providers attend Cultivate #9

The October Cultivar Hispanic Business Owners Breakfast was an opportunity to celebrate and honor the contributions of Hispanic business owners in Lancaster during Hispanic Heritage Month. The event, now a permanent part of the Cultivate Lancaster entrepreneur series, provides networking and informative updates from service providers in the entrepreneurial community and had 65 attendees at the breakfast.

Luis Quiroz, Owner of Chellas Arepa Kitchen shares his experience attending Cultivar.

“That day I was able to meet Marshall Snively the President of the Lancaster City Alliance, he offered to get together and have a one-on-one meeting. It was great to hear his thoughts and strategies to help Chellas have a brick and mortar in Downtown Lancaster,” said Quiroz.

He adds, “It’s an honor to represent the Latin community through our small business and be celebrated at Cultivar during the Hispanic Heritage Month. It was great to see other business members of our community and to learn more ways to get connected and if needed, find ways to get financially funded.”

Cultivar is a partnership between Lancaster’s Entrepreneurship Coalition, the Lancaster Chamber, and the City of Lancaster.
