Chicago.- Negocios Now is calling for nominations for its 7th annual Latinos 40 Under 40 in Chicago, a unique initiative to recognize and celebrate the leadership of a new generation.
Since it was launched in 2015, Latinos 40 under 40 has recognized 280 leaders in Chicago and New York. The celebration ceremony is planned for March 2022.
“I can’t wait to see who will be nominated at this time. Who are they and what do they do? Recognizing talented young people in different fields has been one of the best satisfactions that Negocios Now has given me since founding the company 14 years ago”, said Clemente Nicado, owner of the publication.
Those selected will represent a group of 40 outstanding Chicagoans under the age of 40. The honorees could represent business, corporations, government, nonprofits, politics, sports, and education, among others.
“I have no doubt that we will have another fantastic group of Latinos and we will face another challenge to select the 40″, said Nicado.
To celebrate the achievements of this younger generation of Latinos, Negocios Now will organize a celebration in March of 2022. Nicado Publishing is actively looking for sponsorships.
In 2019, Negocios Now celebrated the first ever selection of Latinos 40 Under 40 in New York City.
Founded in 2007, Negocios Now is a national award-winning publication and the Midwest’s most dynamic news source for growing Hispanic businesses, focusing primarily on business owners, entrepreneurs and economic development in the Latino community.
Negocios Now has received more than 20 awards from the National Association of Hispanic Publications (NAHP). In May 2012, The Chicago Headline Club, a leading association of local professional journalists, awarded Negocios Now the Peter Lisagor Award for General Excellence, a first for a Hispanic newspaper in Chicago. The publication produces “Who’s Who in Hispanic Chicago,” another unique event in the city. Last August, the publication celebrated the first edition and Gala event dedicated to Who’s Who in Hispanic Business in Chicago’s suburbs.
