LATISM, a non-profit organization for Latinos in social media, has teamed up with Google to coordinate a Hispanic-focused technology startup conference.
Production affiliates said that the event’s purpose is to offer opportunities to Latinos with technology-based startups to network and discuss their concepts, as well as learn strategies for success within the Hispanic community, Fox News Latino reported. 
The event, Latino 2 Series: Jumpstarting an Innovation Revolution, will begin this Thursday, June 26, at Google Ventures in Mountain View, California.

The event will offer workshops with start-up investors, as well as feedback and advice from marketing and technology experts.
