Brief Story of Get in Motion Entrepreneurs

Get in Motion Entrepreneurs is an organization founded by Armando Ehrenzweig. Back in the 2000’s, Armando was already an entrepreneur struggling to make his ventures grow. He saw the need to look for a business assistant to grow his micro business. He quickly learned that there were not enough Spanish programs or support for people like him.

Armando saw a gap to serve the Latino community that prefers Spanish to get Business Literature and support. In 2011, he filed his fictitious name to start Get in Motion Entrepreneurs. In 2017 we adopted the Nonprofit Model.

It has been an adventurous journey to serve, understand and engage with the Latino Business Community.
