Last October, the Hispanic Chamber of E-Commerce (Hiscec) launched a private business network to improve communication among members. The network has since reached more than 5,000 users, making it one of the fastest-growing Hispanic private business networks in the country, according to a news release.

Hiscec targets family-owned businesses, entrepreneurs and professionals alike.

"We truly love small-business owners and are passionate for the ongoing success of Hispanic-owned companies, in all industries and across the United States," Tayde Aburto, the chamber's founder, said in the release.

Mr. Aburto holds a master's degree in marketing from the Tec de Monterrey's Graduate School of Business Administration and Leadership.

Among the chamber's goals is to get more than 100,000 Hispanic family-owned businesses online.

"Our business model allows us to be financially self-sustaining, providing thousands of business owners a free platform to connect, build business relationships and grow their businesses," German M. Bravo, the chamber's chief technology officer, said in the release.

Mr. Bravo holds a bachelor's degree in computer science from the Tec de Morelia, and specializes in computer programming.

Members of Hiscec's private business network will be on hand to answer questions at Latino iConnect in San Diego on March 5.

Hisec, incorporated in California as a for-profit enterprise in 2008, describes itself as a B2B membership-based business association focused on increasing its members' online presence.
