MIAMI, March 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Discovery en Español presents EMPRENDEDORES, a new original series that explores family, heritage, hard work, and heartbreak of a group of Hispanic entrepreneurs in Los Angeles, as they fight against the odds to achieve success in one of the most competitive cities in the world. Hosted by renowned presenter Angélica Atondo, EMPRENDEDORES premieres Sunday, March 25 at 7pm ET/ 8pm PT.
Shot on location in Los Angeles, the inaugural season of EMPRENDEDORES will follow six diverse and dynamic businesses as they confront issues ranging from business planning and marketing to staffing and employee relations. Businesses profiled include a family-owned boxing gym, a coffee shop and a scooter sales business.
Host, entrepreneur, former news anchor and published author Angelica Atondo works with each of the business owners and their families to assess their unique situation. The hopeful entrepreneurs are then mentored by brothers Sean and Kenny Salas, two successful Hispanic businessmen and consultants, who delve into the family dynamics, their business operations, and provide much needed guidance to help put them on the path to profitability.
“EMPRENDEDORES features real-life stories of Latino families who have given everything to pursue their dreams of having their own business and forge a future for their families in the United States“, says Angélica Atondo. “Personally, this project touches on 3 of my greatest joys: help others, provide support for small business owners, and do it on television, my greatest passion. I am proud to connect with these stories and desires to thrive and succeed in life.”
