Business Solutions Series to Serve as Resource for Small Business Owners

Nationwide deepens relationship with the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce through rollout of new online program

Columbus, OH - Small businesses play an integral part in healthy communities and the economy as a whole. As the lifeline of the U.S. economy, it’s critical that small business owners have the tools and resources to help their business grow and thrive.

Through a partnership with the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC), Nationwide is launching a new online three-part video series designed to strengthen the operations and growth of small businesses. The Nationwide Business Solutions Series includes an e-workbook to give participants the opportunity to develop a custom execution plan to grow their businesses.

“As the nation’s top provider of small commercial insurance, Nationwide understands small businesses and is committed to providing solutions to help meet their needs,” said Jennifer MacKenzie, Nationwide’s senior vice president of Marketing. “Hispanic business owners are opening businesses at 3 times the rate of all other business owners. The Business Solutions Series will give these entrepreneurs valuable insights and tips on how to take their businesses to the next level in today’s marketplace.”

Launching in January, the Business Solutions Series will help teach small business owners how to leverage social media to drive sales, develop an annual plan and learn how to assess the value and growth potential of the business.

“The USHCC is proud to partner with Nationwide to bring our members across the country the educational tools that they need in order to grow and scale their Hispanic-owned businesses,” said Ramiro Cavazos, USHCC President & CEO. “We are thankful for Nationwide’s commitment to building on the success of Latina and Latino entrepreneurs, and for providing the solutions we need as a community for our small businesses across the country.”

Through the Business Solutions Series, business owners will get valuable insights from successful experts and entrepreneurs, such as:

• Carlos Gil, social media expert and entrepreneur

• Karla Sandoval, entrepreneur coach

• Nick Delgado, president of Black Pen White Board

The strong relationship between the USHCC and Nationwide has enabled the company to retain its connection to small businesses across the country through a shared vision and value system. It is this partnership that makes Nationwide proud to help support entrepreneurs today and in the future. Visit Nationwide’s Business Solutions Center to access additional resources.
