Entrepreneur Profile: Luis Mora
Luis Mora - AnewAmerica Class of 2012
Glancing at the computer on his desk, Luis Mora states, “My goal for the future is to be financially independent, so my business is the first step towards being financially independent... And then to give back to the community, help out. That’s what I want to do.”
When Luis was a student at San Francisco State University, he began fixing computers as a hobby. After two years of working at a computer store in Berkeley, Luis says, he realized that he had the hands-on experience and the drive to start a business of his own. However, he did not have a business background or formal training. When Luis began AnewAmerica’s Business Incubation program, he put what he learned into action immediately, and his business developed over the course of the class. He also enrolled in a fast-paced, 22-week IT certification program to increase his technology skill set.
Luis states, "AnewAmerica opened doors for me that I didn’t even know existed. I have so many more opportunities to grow my business than I have ever had before. I am so grateful for AnewAmerica’s program and my participation in the Stride Center. AnewAmerica does not just offer a class, it offers opportunities and it opens doors."
