EparaTodos Entrepreneurship Committee, Shrinking the Gap Between Latino Businesses, American Market

by Tomas G. Michele, The Valley Patriot

For the third time, the EParaTodos’ Entrepreneurship committee, brought a high-profile Keynote Speaker to the city, empowering the local Business Owners & Entrepreneurs through a networking event which took place at Japú Restaurant: with the main goal to assist attendants to expand their social network.


The Keynote Speaker was the Cuban Nelson Reyneri, whom is currently serving as Liberty Power’s Senior Vice President for sales and external affairs. In this role, he oversees the company’s strategy for developing structured solutions to support corporations’ energy and sustainability goals. This includes product development for supply and demand side energy strategies, internal and external business analytics and energy related thought leadership, including engagement with Chief Procurement Officers, Sourcing Professionals, Diversity and Inclusion Professionals as well as Public Service Commissions.


The event took place on Tuesday, January 28th, 2020 from 6:00 PM to 8:00PM. Free of cost, and open to the public.


Reyneri holds two master’s degrees, one in Business Administration from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, and the other one in Public Administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.


Reyneri also has extensive senior leadership experience in the public sector. In 2016, he was nominated by President Barack Obama to serve on the Board of Directors of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), a position requiring Senate confirmation.
