Meet one of our Corporate members:
Agustin Rodriguez is Sr Director of Social Enterprises and Development of Ibero Business Center. Ibero Business Center offers business training in classroom, one-on-one and virtual settings, business pitch competitions (for cohort members only), and business incubation via the International Plaza (in Rochester) and Naz716 (in Niagara Falls).
What are you currently most excited about when it comes to your organization?
Expansion into more counties with underserved MWBEs. IBC is expanding into Wayne and Erie/Genesee County on top of our Niagara Falls, Monroe, and Ontario counties.
Why did you become a member of the RHBA and why should someone consider joining?
I joined because I wished for a forum that allowed me to build relationships over time within the Hispanic community. RHBA has a nice mix of professional and entrepreneurial membership base that makes it a nice rounded networking opportunity.
The ROI for membership is a no brainer. RHBA is only getting more active within the entrepreneur/small business industry. They are also being intentional about where they put their focus while keeping traditions alive.
