We officially launched the AmplifyLatinx PowerUp Latinx Biz, a first of its kind collaborative, innovative movement focused on activating Massachusetts’ untapped economic potential by increasing growth and economic opportunity for Latinx-owned businesses in Massachusetts. PowerUp’s mission is to create visibility for Latinx-owned businesses, meaningfully connect them to existing resources, and recognize them as an influential consumer market that must be engaged by our entire business community.

We look forward to advancing the PowerUp movement to unleash Massachusetts’ untapped economic potential.
