Hispanic inventors and entrepreneurs
Read our stories about Hispanic innovators
National Hispanic Heritage Month, held each year from September 15 - October 15, celebrates Hispanic cultures and heritage, while recognizing the many contributions Hispanic Americans have made to society.
These stories of Hispanic inventors and entrepreneurs and the challenges they overcame —including immigration, starting (and restarting) from scratch, learning English, and facing loss and even natural disasters— are part of our monthly Journeys of Innovation series about innovators who have made a positive difference in the world. We hope they will inspire you to bring your ideas to fruition.
