Hispanic entrepreneurs with potential tech startups can attend a conference next week in Silicon Valley to learn how to bring their idea to fruition.

The all-day conference "Latino 2 Series: Jumpstarting an Innovation Revolution" is put on by Latinos in Social Media (LATISM) and will take place Thursday, June 26, at Google Ventures in Mountain View, Calif.

Potential entrepreneurs can take part in a series of workshops with business advice from industry experts in marketing, access to venture capital and technology. Attendees will also receive insight from existing Latino startups as well as their investors and what they are looking for in the next generation of entrepreneurs.

"In today's digital economy Latinos must move from simply being consumers to leaders in the technology field," said Ana Roca Castro, LATISM founder, in a statement. "We thank Google for hosting the conference again this year and for helping us build a more inclusive ecosystem."

LATISM is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the social, civic and economic status of the Hispanic community through technology innovation and social media. For more information about the conference, visit
