Negocios Now announces its first-ever list of Latinos 40 Under 40 in New York

The celebration event will be held at Copacabana Times Square on November 12.

New York, NY- October 22, 2019—Negocios Now released today its first list of Latinos 40 Under 40 in New York, to recognize the leadership of young Latinos in the NY metropolitan area.

 The 40 recipients were selected after an over four-month nomination period. They represent areas of business, corporate, government, nonprofits, the fashion industry, and education, among other fields.

“We are very excited about having the first Latino 40 under 40 in the New York area. It was a huge challenge for the Negocios Now Team but this wouldn’t have been possible without our growing Negocios Now network throughout the country. We worked hard to make this a success,”  said Clemente Nicado, Publisher of Negocios Now.

Nicado expressed gratitude for the cooperation from members of the community that have participated in the nomination process such as, Hispanic Alliance for Career Enhancement (HACE), Association of Latinos Professionals For America of New York (ALPFA),  New York State Coalition of Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, Hispanic Federation and Univision New York.

Sponsored by Remy Martin, Latinos 40 Under 40 celebration and networking event will be held on Tuesday, November 12, from 6 to 9 pm. At Copacabana 268 West 47th Street, 8th Ave, New York, NY 10036.
