Amigos was created by Danay Escanaverino in December 2020 during the height of the pandemic when Clubhouse’s social audio app launched.
Soon after, she was joined by a team of founding admins, who shared her vision of creating a community for Latinos, by Latinos to elevate Latino professionals.
The admins have evolved into a leadership team which consists of Latinx professionals and influencers who are committed to creating and hosting spaces and collaborations that foster connections and opportunities for the community to serve its mission.
Elevating the Latino Professional Community by maximizing opportunities for members to connect with the resources and support that they need to thrive and become leaders in their industries all while honoring our unity and diversity with a sprinkling of fun and authenticity.
To become the go-to resource for Latinx professionals to find their tribe in order to:
1. Level Up Careers.
2. Build Sustainable Wealth.
3. Launch & Grow Businesses.
4. Pay it forward / Advocacy.
We do this by providing spaces and events that discuss and connect Latinx professionals with the following opportunities for FREE:
- Networking: Daily networking events at 10:00 AM EST with a rotating panel of hosts.
