If you are not familiar with some of the names, let me provide some additional color. Eddy Cue is a Cuban-American and the second-ranking executive at Apple. He has helped make Apple the most valuable company in the history of the world. Orlando Bravo is the wealthiest Latino in America with a net worth of more than 8 billion dollars, and Priscila Almodovar is the only Latina CEO of a Fortune 100 company. Beyond this incredible list of headliners, the hallways at NAL will include top producers, venture capitalists, tech entrepreneurs, entertainers, professional athletes, the national media, and some of the wealthiest and most successful Latinos in America. It is the ultimate convergence of business, media, and Latino culture in the world. So, who should attend?
Not everyone has the capacity to think big. In fact, most people can’t see beyond what is standing directly in front of them. But if you believe that your success is only limited by your capacity to think big, you won’t find any place that will expand your vision more than NAL – especially if you are Latino. Just being around the best of the best is a life-changing experience. NAL will force you to rethink everything. If that scares you, don’t come – but if that excites you, you can’t miss it. I have said many times that success is a factor of what you know and who you know. The information and the networking at L’ATTITUDE are world-class, plain and simple. NAL is for the biggest thinkers among us.
Entrepreneurs Looking for Massive Growth
If you own a business or have an idea for one, everything you need to scale that business massively will be at NAL. If you need customers, they will be there. If you need a mentor, trust me, there will be plenty to choose from. If you need capital, every type of capital source under the sun will be in attendance. If you need to rethink your vision, be prepared for your mind to be blown. If you are a true entrepreneur, you’ll want to check out a couple of sessions of Match-Up at L’ATTTITUDE and see many of the most promising Latino-led start-ups competing for the title of Latino start-up of the year. I have said that the next class of mega-successful entrepreneurs will be Latino, and I guarantee you, that many of them will be at NAL this year.
People Who Want to Be Part of a Movement
The core purpose of NAL is to create a new narrative about Latinos in America and to advance the economic mobility of the Latino community. It is a movement, and if you are inspired by those objectives, you will want to be part of the movement. NAL is changing the narrative and making America stronger. The movement is powerful!
NAHREP at L’ATTITUDE will take place at the Fontainebleau Hotel and Resort in Miami Beach from September 27th through September 30th. If you are a big thinker, or entrepreneur or want to be part of a movement that is changing the world for the better and haven’t yet registered, you will want to do it today!
