It’s the first week of October, and that means we are about halfway through Hispanic Heritage Month, a month dedicated to celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.
For decades, Hispanic Americans have “consistently helped make our country strong and prosperous. They contribute to our Nation beyond description. Hispanic Americans embody the best of our American values, including commitment to faith, family, and country. The Hispanic American community has left an indelible mark on our government, culture, and economy.” (U.S Department of State).
Within our own Boston community, there are so many vibrant, notable Hispanic-owned businesses that add talent, experience, passion, and perspective to our city. The Chamber is proud to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by showcasing some of our Hispanic-owned business members doing great work every day.
Without further ado, here are three of our members we think you’ll love just as much as we do:
Beauchamp & Associates
With 30 years in the philanthropic field, Aixa Beauchamp was named one of the 100 Most Influential People in Boston in 2018. She is an independent consultant who works to strengthen Latino communities. Featured in Financial Times Wealth, The Boston Globe, and Inside Philanthropy, Aixa has “facilitated dialogues across various sectors to advance funder relations in diverse communities.” She’s also spearheaded programs to maximize giving among U.S. Latinos and Latin America, and partnered with a variety of groups to promote sustained and strategic philanthropy among African American, Latino, and Asian American donors.

Aixa utilizes her experience and interpersonal skills to provide structure and strategy to diverse communities. With her passion and dedication, she is known by various communities as a bold and committed leader.
Flowetik is a Hispanic-owned marketing agency that works to “uncomplicate the complicated.” Their goal is to help like-minded mission-driven businesses achieve success in their brand marketing by focusing on creating “enduring value” marketing, as opposed to disposable. They take pride in keeping things simple, focused, and honest, and offer an array of services that aim to scale and achieve impact. View their services here.
The Chica Project, Quincy-based non-profit, helps young women shape their lives, their communities, country, and world, while building solidarity and sisterhood. The organization works to instill “skills, tools, contacts and self-confidence” in order for young women of color to successfully launch themselves into adulthood, in whatever path they choose (Chica Project).
Taking pride in nurturing the potential and talent of these women, the Chica Project’s mentors, workshops, and leadership development programs help ensure more Black and Brown chicas are given the skills and resources they deserve to reach their full potential.

We hope this blog brings not only awareness of the wonders of these businesses throughout this month, but well into the changing seasons of life. As a city, Boston is a mixing pot of diverse cultures, and this diversity of people, food, and culture is what brings to life the character and charm that Boston breathes as a city. The Chamber is profoundly proud of our Hispanic- and Latinx-owned businesses we are honored to call our members. Thank you for being a key contributor to the greatness of our Greater Boston community.
