From Immigrant To Middle Class Wealth In Just One Generation (With Mendoza Venture's Adrian Mendoza)
Play • 49 min

"In this world outside of the Latino community, to the white world, everything's negotiable."

Adrian Mendoza is the Co-Founder and General Partner of Mendoza Ventures, an early and growth-stage fintech, AI, and cybersecurity venture fund that he founded after noticing no one in the startup world looked like him.

In this episode of The American Dream podcast, Adrian and Elias discuss why there are fewer Latinx seen in the startup world, how more Latinx can get into tech (and why they should), and why being an accredited investor is the next milestone everyone should be aiming for in order to experience at least middle-class wealth.
