Job Creators Network and Florida State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Announce New Partnership

Florida’s top Hispanic economic development organization teams up with national business group

(Atlanta, GA) Job Creators Network (JCN) and the Florida State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (FSHCC) today announced a new partnership aimed at providing employer and employee resources to thousands of member businesses throughout Florida.

With more than 38 local chambers and a network that extends to 300,000 small business owners and millions of employees, FSHCC promotes the economic advancement of Florida’s Hispanic business community.

“We believe economic empowerment is one major way to strengthen the business footprint of Florida’s Hispanic community,” said Julio Fuentes, President and CEO of FSHCC. “By joining forces with Job Creators Network, we will be able to add some much needed muscle to this focus by enriching our members’ understanding of the critical policy issues that impact not only their businesses, but their employees.”

“Clearly, Hispanic-owned companies are a growing, enterprising segment of our economy,” said Alfredo Ortiz, President of JCN. “Job Creators Network will offer every networking and educational resource available to ensure this growth includes a well-informed workforce.”

Job Creators Network will partner with FSHCC on educating its members about policies that promote economic freedom and job creation. FSHCC will also distribute JCN news and educational materials to all members in Florida with special emphasis on engaging CEOs in employer to employee (E2E) education.

“We understand that some government policies force business owners everywhere to make very tough decisions such as cutting hours, pay and even jobs just to keep up with overreach from unelected bureaucrats,” Ortiz added. “All entrepreneurs deserve thorough knowledge of policies that can help – and hurt – their ability to start and grow their businesses.”

“The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Florida, fueled by a strong, dedicated workforce,” said Fuentes. “We look forward to working with JCN to help that workforce become educated and empowered to make informed decisions about their own futures and those of our state’s great Hispanic businesses.”


Job Creators Network (JCN) is the voice of real job creators that has been missing from the debate on jobs and our economic crisis. JCN members talk about paychecks, not politics, helping the public and policymakers understand how to create jobs. For more information please visit
