Carolina Acosta is a Latina entrepreneur from Queens NY with a background in graphic design. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Parsons School of Design. Carolina launched a game dedicated to Latinos and she’s making history in the process since the gaming industry is white, cisgender, male-dominated, and often overlooks people of color and women.
In this episode we talked more about entrepreneurship. This year we have been enjoying learning from other Latinx entrepreneurs. We hope this conversation can inspire other folks that are also thinking about entrepreneurship and don’t know how to start.
