Tampa Partner Vanessa Negron Cohn received an award on October 26 from the Hispanic Business Initiative Fund of Florida (HBIF) in appreciation of her “vision, leadership and dedication” as one of its founders. HBIF, celebrating its 20 Year Anniversary, is the leading Hispanic economic development, nonprofit organization in Florida that specializes in providing bilingual assistance to Hispanic entrepreneurs trying to establish or expand their business in Florida. The event was held at the Tampa Marriot (Waterside) and was attended by several hundred people. Vanessa was involved in many aspects of the concern, from the original design and organization of the entity, to fundraising at the state and local levels, both from government and private sources. She served as a leader of HBIF for many years, at times as president (day-to-day), and as chair of the board.
