Prospera is an economic development, nonprofit organization specialized in providing bilingual assistance to Hispanic entrepreneurs trying to establish or expand their business. Prospera empowers Hispanic entrepreneurs through in-culture and in-language training, support and resources so their businesses can grow and prosper.
Our business model was created by Hispanic entrepreneurs, for Hispanic entrepreneurs, and has proven to be effective since 1991.
Prospera’s North Carolina office opened in July 2017 in Charlotte, within Mecklenburg County and co-located with the Latin American Chamber of Commerce of Charlotte (LACCC). It was Prospera’s first office outside of the state of Florida. Prospera later established an office in Raleigh in 2021 to serve the Research Triangle Area, located within the offices of partner organization, the Rural Center. Prospera serves all of the state of North Carolina from those two offices, with occasional scheduled visits to rural areas and other cities such as Wilmington and Durham.
