About Us


Thank you for visiting the Tampa Bay Latin Chamber of Commerce website.

For the past ten years, I have been thinking of ways to propel Tampa Bay into the future with the help from the Latino talent and investment already existing in our amazing community. Although I was able to watch the transformation our community was making, the involvement of the Latino community was not evident in this transformation.

After one successful meeting with startup founders, local businesses, and Latin-owned businesses, we decided we were launching the Tampa Bay Latin Chamber of Commerce. In this age of disruption, where technologies are the great equalizer, Latinos or people coming from disenfranchised communities do not have the same level of access to resources to back their own companies and that was the trigger for us.

Here at the Tampa Bay Latin Chamber, we sponsor various business showcases and networking events. From elected officials as guest speakers to partnering up with local organizations, our goal is to foster the growth of our member businesses while encouraging diversity and innovation across Tampa Bay. We are currently planning to launch a tech accelerator to help recruit top startups locally and from regions across the world- Latin America, the Iberian peninsula, and West Africa, among them.

If you are new to the Tampa Bay area, I invite you to connect with us and check our various business and community resources our chamber has to offer.
