The LBA mission is Building Economic Wealth And Opportunity For Latino Entrepreneurs by providing innovative programs and services that enhance the success, growth and advancement of Latino businesses, and the community at large.
The Latin Business Association (LBA) serves as the unifying voice for Latino businesses, advocating for opportunities and services that set business owners at a higher class of competitiveness.
Established in 1976 as a private non-profit organization, the LBA is one of the most active associations on the basis of its membership and overall outreach to Latino business owners.
In 1998, the LBA created the LBA-Institute (LBAI) a 501 (c) (3) non-profit institute. The LBAI is involved in educational, research and economic development. It also provides technical assistance and generates procurement funding. The LBA and LBAI work in partnership to deliver comprehensive events and programs to fulfill our commitment of serving our membership, and the community.
