The headlining session of the night was the Awards Ceremony and it was absolutely amazing to see so many like-minded people and entrepreneurs of young and old business age supporting one another in this space. The Awards Ceremony was hosted by Ricardo Recci, Insurance Broker at Aztec Insurance & Valeria Rodriguez, Founder & Creator of VR Creative. They did an excellent job of leading this session, and talking about how important and useful BALSA was in their venture. We want to congratulate all of the winners and thank all of the community members for coming out to support this mission! Keep on the lookout on our socials and website to see what we have coming next month of Sustainability & Wellness, and have a great weekend VenCaf Community!
