150 Fellowships Awarded
Across the U.S.
100% Awarded to Latina Women

American Express and Luminary are committed to backing the success of women entrepreneurs. Latina- owned small businesses represented 31% of all net new women-owned businesses in 2018-2019.* And because they are also among the most underserved segments, American Express, together with Luminary, is launching the first-ever Luminary Fellowship — fully dedicated to Latina entrepreneurs — helping them get tools and resources to support their growth.

This fellowship provides 150 Latina business owners with a complimentary one-year Luminary membership, including on-site/virtual educational programming, events, mentoring, networking opportunities across Luminary’s extensive global community and more. Plus, Fellows also receive access to American Express business tools, resources, events and exclusive offerings.
