Integra Staffing Awards $1000 Scholarship


Dec 13, 2007 Integra Staffing & Search awarded a $1000 “Emerging Entrepreneur” Scholarship to Maria Carrizo at the Latin American Chamber of Commerce of Charlotte’s (LACCC) holiday party on Tuesday evening. Carrizo will use the scholarship to fund a new restaurant called “Latino Gourmet.”

“As an entrepreneur, it is so rewarding to help other emerging entrepreneurs realize their dream of starting a business,” says Michelle Fish, CEO of Integra Staffing. “It will be very exciting to see Maria become a restaurant owner.”

This is first year the “Emerging Entrepreneur” scholarship was awarded. Carrizo was chosen from over 50 applicants based on her detailed business plan and previous work experience in her native country. The LACCC and LACCC Foundation will continue to provide mentoring, networking, and promotional opportunities to Carrizo throughout her new business venture.

The LACCC acts to preserve and promote existing Latin American businesses, encourage new Latin American businesses, and promote networking with non-Latin American businesses and organizations, as well as acting as an advocate for the Latin American business community.
