Join MarketWatch for a webinar on being an entrepreneur in 2018

Rafael Alvarez.

Rafael Alvarez had $200 and an idea.

The idea, hatched back in the 1980s, was that the advent of electronic filing would transform the tax-preparation industry. And that $200 grew into Atax Franchise Inc., the tax and bookkeeping business Alvarez built and franchised around the country.

Join us Friday, Sept. 21, at 3 p.m. Eastern time, for a webinar with Alvarez to learn how he got from Point A to Point B. It’s the first installment of our Latino Founders series, which we’re producing in collaboration with Stanford’s Latino Entrepreneurship initiative.

MarketWatch’s editor-in-chief, Jeremy Olshan, will be profiling Latino entrepreneurs across various industries, discussing the challenges they’ve faced, and how they were overcome.

Sign up for the Rafael Alvarez webinar here. And if you have questions for Alvarez, please leave them in the comments below.
