BII News

When hiring her last spring, BII called Francisco “a force of nature on behalf of entrepreneurs of color.” Considering that the cofounder of the nonprofit Amplify Latinx has been connecting Boston’s Black and Hispanic business owners with funding sources for years, it’s not an exaggeration. Partnering with everyone from Harvard Business School to City Hall, Francisco continues to put her stamp on Boston while working to fulfill BII’s mission to close the city’s racial wealth gap.
