The Make the Connection! IHCC Signature Breakfast convenes the Midwest Hispanic business community for a morning of networking and collaboration. More than 800 Hispanic business owners from every industry come together to meet their peers, build relationships and be inspired to continue on their entrepreneurial journeys. We believe all entrepreneurs are “makers.” They make products and services that create value and joy for their customers. They make jobs that provide a living and purpose for the people in their communities. They make a vision for how the world could be. Entrepreneurs are the building blocks of our society. That is why we want to celebrate the makers that have shaped our city in so many different ways, from the architects to restaurateurs and artists that MAKE Chicago.
