PUENTE’s Lideres Inc. STEM entrepreneur students achieved a remarkable feat at the UnidosUS: The Power of Us Conference in Chicago, Illinois during the weekend of July 22-24, 2023. Their innovative ‘Ping’ product and business pitch secured them 1st place in the entrepreneur competition, with each of the four participants taking home HP Chromebooks.

The panel of judges, comprised of executives from FedEx, not only evaluated the seven groups of high school student participants but also co-sponsored the Lideres Inc. STEM Entrepreneur Summer Program in partnersip with Shell and UnidosUS.

Many thanks to UnidosUS for their invitation and unwavering support, making it possible for 15 members of our College and Career program, which included youth, parents, and staff, to attend the annual conference with all expenses covered.
