Tecnifícate Conference educates Spanish-speaking Californians on how to leverage Internet technology

A Unique Community College Economic Development Program

Salinas, CA

Who:               Ariel Coro, Hispanic Technology Expert and founder of Tu Tecnología and the California Community Colleges Economic & Workforce Development iima4biz Initiative announce Tecnifícate, a Spanish language technology conference at Hartnell Community College.

What:             Tecnifícate is a free, one day event that invites Spanish speaking business persons for a day full of information on how to leverage internet technology to grow business which is conducted entirely in Spanish.  This event is also motivational, focusing on the importance of technology in personal and professional development, as well as, your children’s education.  Several technology experts will speak.

When:             Saturday, May 19th, 10:00 am until 2:00 pm
Doors open at 9:30 am

Where:            Steinbeck Hall at Hartnell Community College
411 Central Ave.
Salinas, CA 93901

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 Tecnifícate 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 Tecnificate’s held in the Los Angeles area have drawn hundred’s of attendees from hundred’s 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 tecnologías y alcanza tu potencial (The leap – leverage new technologies and reach your potential). Coro is the host of Tu Tecnología, 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.
