What began as a napkin-sketch idea to lighten the load for working families planning to celebrate age-old Hispanic traditions, quickly developed into a network of distinguished vendors and party planners for Latinos across the globe.
Kim Gamez, CEO and founder of Mi Padrino®, saw a need in the Latino community for event planning services and developed a one-click solution. Curating timeless memories with event planning and crowd gifting for the underserved Hispanic community, Mi Padrino provides a platform to not only ease the pain of party planning but do so at an affordable cost.
Supported by resources provided by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation Entrepreneurship & Innovation initiative and a Desai Accelerator Best Pitch award winner, Mi Padrino's expansion reflects the growing need for minority-focused startups and funding across the state of Michigan. With a goal to constantly inspire, relieve and connect a community from coast to coast, Mi Padrino has grown to be a leader in the event planning industry.
In the following videos, Kim shares three takeaways to help aspiring entrepreneurs in planning and practicing business pitches to managing a work/life balance to modeling entrepreneurial spirit and values to family.
