ORLANDO, FL. November 14, 2023 – The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (HCCMO) and Prospera held a press conference today at the Winter Park Library. Bold Hispanic Marketing Agency was announced as one of the three finalists of the prestigious Don Quijote Awards (Hispanic Business of the Year – 5 Years or Less). BOLD received over 10 nominations from the community, which reflects its commitment to excellence in helping businesses connect with the Hispanic market through digital marketing and showcases its hard work in the Central Florida community. Those who attended the press conference were members of the HCCMO and Prospera Board of Directors, local community leaders, media, and other award finalists with whom BOLD is proud to share this honor.
The Don Quijote Awards recognize and celebrate successful companies and individuals who courageously take risks to achieve their goals and contribute to the progress of the community in Central Florida.
“For me, being a finalist among this group of talented business owners is an honor. It is a testament to our hard work and dedication. This means we are doing things right and will open up a world of opportunities for BOLD. This experience is a full-circle moment. I attended Don Quijote for the first time while working with Univision, then as part of Prospera’s team, later as a volunteer and Ambassador for HCCMO, and now as a finalist. It is a dream come true,” expressed Ana Carolina Salazar, CEO & Founder of BOLD.
Part of this achievement has been possible thanks to the unwavering support of various organizations that have believed in the company from the beginning. Prospera has played a crucial role in providing valuable assistance to BOLD since its inception. Prospera helped establish the company and provided essential guidance in branding, legal advice, access to capital, and valuable business consulting. At BOLD, we are grateful for their contribution to the company’s growth.
The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando (HCCMO) has also played a vital role in contributing to BOLD’s success. BOLD has been proud to be an active member for the last 4 years, where Ana Carolina Salazar has volunteered and served in various capacities, including Ambassador Chair and Board Member. HCCMO has been a valuable ally for BOLD, facilitating business development opportunities and networking with other entrepreneurs in the community. BOLD thanks HCCMO for their continuous support and role in the growth and success of the company.
BOLD’s dedication to giving back to the community has been a social responsibility and part of the company’s DNA. This has strengthened its ties with the community and uncovered a sense of purpose beyond business, driving the company’s success through board participation, event engagement, in-kind donations, and volunteer work. Thank you for joining BOLD on this journey!
The 2023 Don Quijote Awards winners will be announced at the annual gala on December 9, 2023, at the World Showplace Pavilion at Epcot.
