Over the years, Kevin Hart has become quite the serial entrepreneur. Now, he’s helping Black and LatinX founders find their footing by equipping them with the money and resources needed to thrive.
According to PR Newswire, the entertainer’s Gran Coramino Tequila® brand has officially launched The Coramino Fund which includes $500,000 to support small business owners and entrepreneurs across the nation.
Supporting The Next Generation of Entrepreneurs
“I am extremely proud to announce Gran Coramino’s partnership with LISC to support Black and Latinx entrepreneurs all over the US. At Gran Coramino, we know that pursuing the path of entrepreneurship is hard work,” said Hart in an official news release.
He continued: “We also know that some of our best and brightest have historically been excluded from opportunities or lacked the resources to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams. As an entrepreneur myself, I know how impactful bringing financial resources and learning opportunities to these communities can be.”
Providing Resources and Funds
With every bottle of Gran Coramino Tequila that is sold, the company is donating $1 to its giveback program. In addition, both Hart and his co-founder Juan Domingo Beckmann have also partnered with LISC to build the initiative, which provides both financial resources and learning opportunities to small business throughout the US.
“Black and Latinx entrepreneurs historically have been blocked from access to affordable capital resources, which has restricted the ability of their businesses to grow, thrive, and create generational wealth,” said LISC CEO Lisa Glover.
“We’re thrilled to team up with Gran Coramino Tequila to help close that opportunity gap by connecting these entrepreneurs to grants that enable them to nurture and mature their businesses,” she added. “Small businesses are the life-blood of a community and this funding to support Black and Latinx businesses not only benefits entrepreneurs but also brings vital jobs, goods, services, and energy to communities.”
