FundLatinos was conceived of by StartingFive Partners, a company created by several multi-time successful entrepreneurs and General Catalyst Partners. The idea was inspired by the realization that cause funding platforms and the businesses behind them often lacked a real sense of purpose and community. Several of our Latino founders felt particularly passionate about having a social mission that goes beyond traditional business goals.
As part of our commitment to community, FundLatinos waives all of its fees for non-profit organizations, seeks to build partnerships with local media and aspires to bring in corporate sponsorships from businesses looking to support the Latino community.
Our vision is to build the tools, technology and partnerships needed to foster a trusted environment for Latinos to raise money for personal and community causes that matter.
