Doors open at 9:30 am

Why: Because business growth today is driven by the effective use of the Internet and 20% of adult Californians consider Spanish their primary language, this type of Community College outreach will positively impact the California economy both domestically and internationally where Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world, next to Mandarin.

The Tecnificate series was launched over a year ago and was the brainchild of Ariel Coro, Tu Technologia, and Steve Wright, iima4biz Initiative Director, Economic & Workforce Development Program, Ca. Community Colleges. Two prior Tecnificates held in the Los Angeles area have drawn hundreds of attendees from hundreds of miles to attend. Very few events in California serve the need of the Spanish-speaking Technorati who may have a huge impact on the future CA economy.
Ariel Coro is the Technology Expert for the Hispanic community and author of the new book, El Salto - aprovecha las nuevas tecnologias y alcanza tu potencial (The leap - leverage new technologies and reach your potential). Coro is the host of Tu Tecnologia, a Spanish language broadcast TV segment that educates Hispanic families on the latest tech and autos. His tech column is featured in La Opinion and El Diario La Prensa and is syndicated nationally.
Steve Wright is the iima4biz Initiative Director, Economic & Workforce Development Program, Ca. Community Colleges. A companion program in English, the iima4biz workshop, is now available on line at www.web4biz.org.
