Chicago.- Following the success of Who’s Who in Hispanic Chicago, Negocios Now will launch the first Latinos 40 Under 40 to recognize the leadership of a new generation in the Chicago area.
The special edition will be exclusively in digital format and will come out at the end of November 2015. The 40 Latino leaders will be nominated by the community through the negociosnow.com/40under40 website. The deadline for nomination is October 15, 2015.
Those selected will represent a group of 40 outstanding Chicagoans under the age of 40. The honorees could represent business, government, nonprofits, politics, sports, and education amongst other areas.
“Chicago is the home of a tremendous amount of Latino talent that deserves recognition. This younger generation has learned a lot from their parents and members of their community about hard work. Most of them were born here, are university graduates, lovers of technology and they are the guarantee of future Latino leadership in Chicago,” said Clemente Nicado, publisher of Negocios Now.
In this new endeavor Negocios Now will count on the support of organizations such as the Hispanic Alliance of Career Enhancement (HACE) among other community organizations close to this new generation of leaders.
Nicado Publishing Company, owner of Negocios Now is looking for sponsorship in order to celebrate this first special edition with a presentation and networking event.
“We look forward to the enthusiasm and participation of young Latinos that have been part of our content since our launch in 2007,” Nicado said.
The company created a Latinos 40 Under 40 Facebook Page.
