An extension of the WDM Leads program, the Latino Trade Network is the ultimate business development program designed to help Latino-owned businesses and Latino business owners and entrepreneurs to build their network, grow their business, and collaborate with others in the Latino community in Central Iowa.


“We want to trade connections, ideas, advice, business, goals and dreams”, said Amner Martinez, Founder and CEO of Infinite Resources. “This is a great time for a new wave of Latino leaders, professionals, entrepreneurs, and the greater Des Moines business community to come together.”
