Hispanics On Their Way
To Economic Empowerment Success


Hispanic Corporations


“Though Hispanics lead the nation in one-man operations, they are also creating jobs at an astounding rate.  From 2007 to 2012, the number of non-Hispanic businesses with paid employees remained about the same, increasing only by 0.2% over the five year period.  For Hispanics, on the other hand, the growth was dramatic.  The number of Hispanic-owned businesses with paid employees increased by 17.1% over the same time frame, increasing from less than 250,000 in 2007 to nearly 300,000 in 2012.  In 2015, Hispanic-owned businesses overall contribute an estimated $661 billion to the U.S. economy, an increase of 88% since 2007.”


“Hispanic entrepreneurs are a driving force behind American economic growth, and will continue to grow in the future.  While growth in non-Hispanic businesses has nearly stagnated, Hispanics are leading the way in the creation of new businesses. While the majority of businesses in America are one-man operations, most businesses with paid employees get their start this way.  As the data show, Hispanic owned businesses are creating jobs at a dramatic pace, and will contribute more than half a trillion dollars to our economy this year.  U.S. Hispanics are a vital part of our free market economy, and are growing the pie and creating opportunity for all.” [Source: The Libre Institute. October 8, 2015]


“Every 30 seconds, two non-Hispanics hit retirement age and one Hispanic turns 18 years old. According to the Selig Center for Economic Growth at the Terry School of Business at the University of Georgia, Hispanics will represent 74% of labor force growth by 2020.   However, according to the Center for Hispanic Leadership, Hispanic professionals are only delivering 40% of their full potential at work. With the growing purchasing power of Hispanic consumers that is estimated to reach $1.7T by 2019 (according to the Selig Center), there is urgency to employ and advance more Hispanics into influential leadership roles – where they can help most authentically guide brands to create the most effective strategies to not only attract and develop top Hispanic talent, but capture the growing Hispanic marketplace.” [Source:  Forbes – Without Hispanics America’s Corporations Cannot Grow and Compete. May 17, 2015]


Unknown to many Black Americans, “the buying power of Latinos has increased 7 times since 1990 – from $212 billion to over $1.4 trillion in 2014 – and the Hispanic population grew an estimated 57 percent between 2000 and 2014, rising from 35.3 million to over 55 million. However, the growth of Hispanic businesses continues to be unnoticed by many main-stream corporations as well as the general public, even to members of the Latino community. Large Hispanic companies are achieving considerable revenues and becoming important contenders in their industries. The following are the largest Latino companies in revenues across the country, according to Hispanic Top 500 Hispanic Business.”


1. Brightstar Corp. (revenue at $6.3 billion)

2. MasTec Inc. (estimated revenue rose at $4.25 billion)

3. Molina Healthcare (revenue at $3.0 billion)

4. Greenway Ford (revenue at $1.2 billion)

5. Related Group (revenues at $1.02 billion) [Source: Huffington Post, Latino Voices, 11/25/2013]


The majority of Hispanic companies are funded from personal savings. Even though Hispanics have traditionally earned less money than any other ethnic group in America. Based on the available evidence, they have learned how to do more and accomplish more with less.


The Hispanic
Association On Corporate Responsibility (HACR)

The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR), one of the nation’s leading Hispanic advocacy organizations, released today the results of its 2015 HACR Corporate Inclusion Index (HACR CII). The HACR CII is a component of HACR’s Corporate Accountability Strategy and measures Hispanic inclusion at Fortune 100 companies and HACR Corporate Member companies. The results of the 2015 HACR CII indicate that nearly 25 percent of this year’s returning participants have improved their rating from 2014, which reflects a commitment to diversity.
