With an emphasis on diversity, Company is committed to promoting access to capital, opportunities and new markets for Hispanic business owners

FORT LEE, N.J. - Cross River Bank (“Cross River”), a technology infrastructure provider that offers embedded financial solutions, is proud to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15 to October 15 and honors the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and both Central and South America.

“Even though Hispanic owned businesses account for approximately 5% of the U.S. GDP and have tremendous opportunity of increasing their share of the U.S. economy, access to capital and other financial obstacles remain serious factors in limiting the opportunities of Hispanic business owners and entrepreneurs,” said Assemblywoman Yvonne Lopez (D-19). “Fortunately, organizations like Cross River are intervening and partnering with organizations like the NJ Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to invest and empower our Hispanic small businesses. I am grateful to know that Cross River is actively stepping up for the Hispanic community and I appreciate the company’s strategic programming and investments to ensure our Hispanic businesses can continue to grow, thrive, and succeed.”

Earlier this year, Cross River partnered with the Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey (SHCCNJ) to sponsor the Hispanic Entrepreneurship Training Program (HETP) program as expansion of its Making Waves initiative.

“We appreciate the support of Cross River, that values the economic power of the Hispanic business community motivating growth through education and networking,” said Carlos Medina, President/CEO of SHCCNJ.
