Crecer is a business development program with the objective of supporting and helping Hispanic-owned emerging startups increase their growth during the early stages of development, when they are most at risk of failure. The goal of Crecer is to provide clients with the elements that are essential for business growth: business education, increased access to capital, and business consultation.
