Hispanicize announces tech speaker lineup

 U.S. Latino tech entrepreneurs and the investors and technology companies that want to work with them will take center stage as part of the Tech Entrepreneurs agenda unveiled today for Hispanicize 2014.

Curated by the Latino Startup Alliance, the Tech Entrepreneurs Showcase of Hispanicize 2014 includes workshops, talks, sessions and a national startup competition featuring angel investors, respected Latino tech CEOs and startups. 

Hispanicize 2014, the annual Latino trends event, will take place April 1-4 in downtown Miami’s InterContinental Hotel (register here: http://www.hispanicizeevent.com/attend-2). All of the tech entrepreneur sessions will be taking place between March 31 and April 2nd.

Among the tech leaders, investors and startups participating in the program are: Paul Singh, Partner of 500 Startups and Founder & CEO of Disruption Corporation; Ana Diaz-Hernandez of Kapor Capital; Eduardo Hauser, Chairman of the Board for Vme; Lisa Morales, founder of Shopsy; Deldelp Medina, founder of Gldys and president of Latino Startup Alliance San Francisco; Pablo Fuentes, Founder of Proven; William Crowder, DreamIt Ventures; Mario Tapia, Momentum Accelerator; Giovanni Rodriguez of SocialxDesign and a regular contributor to Forbes; Jonathan Nelson, Hackers/Founders Co-op; Giovanni Dubois of LAM; Fabian Oliva, founder of Fiverun; Giovanni Dubois of LAM; Rick Ehrman, EVP Corporate Development for Univision; Pablo Solano of Rally; Jose Huitron of Crowdismo; and Laura Maydon, Managing Director of Endeavor Miami, among others.

“This great agenda represents a complete and wide spectrum of speakers and topics that we believe will resonate strongly with Latino tech entrepreneurs,” said Jesse Martinez, co-founder of the Latino Startup Alliance.

One of the most offbeat sessions taking place this year is titled “Building an Internet without Internet.” The session will explore how Cuban tech entrepreneurs are banding together to create social communities without even using the Internet, a mostly prohibited item in the island.
