SACRAMENTO – The California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, the premier organization promoting the development of Hispanic entrepreneurs and emerging Latino businesses in California, announced today that it has been chosen by UC Berkley’s Haas School of Business to conduct a study on Hispanic business in California.  

The study will provide important data about Hispanic businesses in California as well as identify challenges those businesses are facing.

The study will be done by the Hass School of Business as part of its Social Sector Solutions program, which involves MBA and undergraduate students in partnership with the international management consulting firm, McKinsey & Company.

“We are honored to partner with the Haas School of Business to research Hispanic businesses in our state,” said Dr. Guido Minaya, a board member of the California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce who is leading the board’s effort on the study. “As California’s Hispanic population continues to grow, it is important for us to understand the growing needs and demands of Hispanic business owners.”  

The California Department of Finance recently projected that by mid-2013 the Latino population in California will equal the white population in the state for the first time.

“The opportunity to serve the CHCC on a collaborative project with four other Berkeley students is a testament to this business school’s strengths, amazing faculty and talented students,” said Felix Miranda, a Haas School MBA student who will serve as the student project lead for the study.

“Hispanic-owned businesses are critical to creating jobs and powering our state’s economy in the years ahead,” said Mark Martinez, CEO and President of the California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce. “The Hispanic Chambers of Commerce in this state will be able to use the information to serve this important business segment and help grow jobs in our state.”

The study on Hispanic business in California is expected to be completed by May 2013.
