As well as, for corporations who want to connect with the best women owned firms.
The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for Ohio (HCCO): is a non-profit organization which grew out of a task force of Hispanic business owners in 1981 alarmed over the low participation in the private and public sector. The association was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1983. And its mission is to promote Hispanic Business interest and its economic development and expansion through strategic partnerships, technical assistance and advocacy.
