What a night!

  It was another terrific night. Latinos 40 Under 40 celebration gathered over 300 attendees at Latiniciy to celebrate the achievement, the success, the talent and the hope of a generation of young people who are making a difference today.

  After six months of the nomination process, Negocios Now couldn’t be more proud of the amazing selection:  They are young Hispanic leaders in major corporations, in business, in-law, fighting for a better future. They are the engine for our economy, helping our community.

 Yes, it was another sold-out event because our community loves to celebrate their leaders. Along with our Latinos under 40, we found their parents, sisters, brothers, neighbors, friends, colleagues and executives of their organizations and part of the big Negocios Now’s family in Chicago.

 Negocios Now did its best to spread the word, using all our digital resources reaching over 100,000 impressions in just a few days, exceeding our expectations.

 Because the idea of launching Latinos 40 under 40 in Chicago was none other than recognizing Latinos entrepreneurs and professionals for everything (excellent) that they do and it has been our commitment since I launched this publication almost 12 years ago.

 Shortly after working at the Chicago Tribune paper in 2003, I realized that general media was very focused on negative news and also negative news about our Latino community.  I understood that we needed more good news for Latinos who wanted to launch businesses, to learn about opportunities, to grow professionally, and also wanted to be recognized for their contributions. That is one of the reasons we have Negocios Now today.

  Latinos 40 Under 40 is just the first Negocios Now recognition event of this year. We are on the way to celebrate Who’s Who in Hispanic Chicago Gala Event, on July 12, and Diversity Supplier: Empowering the Latino Business community, on October 10 and others that will be announced in a few weeks, thanks to the support of our sponsors such as ComEd, Remy Martin, BMO Harris Bank, Microsoft, Facebook, Comcast, CSO, PNC Bank, API, Northeastern University, and others who will be announce. Don’t miss it. Follow us on social media to help us continue to recognize those who deserve it. (Clemente Nicado, Publisher & Editor in Chief)
