ELLA Initiative

Entrepreneurship is a vehicle that can effectively curb the wage gap for women and underserved communities in our state. The ELLA™ Program is designed to provide Latinas, and other underserved entrepreneurs, the resources necessary to start or grow their businesses, increase their earning potential and wealth, and help to end cycles of poverty.

Latina-owned businesses are the fastest-growing segment of women-owned enterprises in Utah’s economy. The success rates of such entrepreneurs are not in line with overall small business development, however, as they are at a disadvantage in regard to many areas critical to business achievement. As a response to these barriers to success, Suazo Business Center, hosts the ELLA™ program. ELLA™ stands for Entrepreneur Latina Leadership Advancement. It translates literally to “HER” in Spanish.

People model what they can see and the Suazo Business Center’s ELLA™ Program provides the women participating with the opportunity to interact with successful businesswomen. It is a highly personalized experience tailored for Latina entrepreneurs to cultivate skills not previously taught in a single program.
