Fusionworks’ Director Leslie Luciano has been selected by the Latino Business Action Network (LBAN), among the 80 Latino entrepreneurs from across the United States to be a part of the second cohort of the Stanford Latino Entrepreneur Leaders Program (SLELP2.)

As part of this immersive six-week program, SLELP2 provides participants with valuable concepts and frameworks, enhanced access to capital, personal mentorship from successful entrepreneurs and investors, and a better understanding of the capital resources necessary to grow their businesses, create jobs, and build a stronger economy.slep

The bar for applicants to SLELP2 is quite high. To be considered for the program, the preferred criteria for applicants is to have either generated $1 million in revenue or have raised $1 million in funding. As part of the six-week program, the entrepreneurs will take a customized online course based on curriculum developed by two Stanford Professors, Huggy Rao and Bob Sutton, who are internationally recognized as experts in scaling businesses.

SLELP2 business owners proudly represent over 40 industries, 50 U.S. cities, and 18 states (and Puerto Rico). They are part of an elite and talented group of innovators and business leaders whose drive, work ethic, and ambition will help to grow our economy and community across the United States.
