The Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce works to brighten the future of disadvantaged students through their Superstars Competition, which teaches entrepreneurial skills to students and which culminates in a city-wide competition for students from Austin’s five Title 1 high schools.

The Southwest Angel Network is involved in the competition in three ways:

  1. Our angels helped mentor and coach all the student teams at Akins High School in January and February.
  2. At the city-wide competition on March 6th, our network selected Heaven Leigh Contreras from Lanier High School, and her company Trace Ace, as the Social-impact Winner, and awarded Heaven a $2,000 college scholarship.
  3. Heaven will be presenting the Trace Ace business plan to our network of angel investors at our Q2 dinner pitch event in May.
