Hispanic Heritage Month Wrap
Hispanic Heritage Month 2022 was one to remember. We gathered in person across the US and Mexico, had two inspiring keynotes, and had an incredible $50k pitch competition. Check out our wrap-up article on what we did, who we met, and most importantly, what we learned over the course of the month.
