CHICAGO - December 1, 2022 - (

CASHDROP, a tech company based in Chicago, Illinois, has launched an equity fund for Latino-owned businesses who use the platform. Founder and CEO Ruben Flores-Martinez is putting $1 million of his own equity into a fund that will be distributed to 1,000 Latino businesses, coining the fund The Latino Renaissance. No other tech company has launched an initiative like this before, with CASHDROP being the first to give ownership stake to its loyal users in a historically underrepresented community. 

Ruben Flores-Martinez, an immigrant from Mexico, saw the reality of setbacks Latinos face. He successfully founded CASHDROP,  joining the 1% of Latino founders that are venture-backed. CASHDROP's product and mission attracted investors that include Harlem Capital, Cyan Bannister, Scott Belski, Valor Equity Partners and David Grutman. Flores-Martinez's unique story has placed him in Forbes 30 Under 30 and Crain's 40 Under 40, and the CASHDROP founding story has become a case study at Harvard Business School. At the event hosted to announce the fund, Flores-Martinez said that "his company is nothing but a compilation of the community who uses it in pursuit of their own dreams," inspiring the audience with a promise to "create a company that means something."

CASHDROP is a point-of-sale and online ordering app with zero seller fees. It is the most merchant-focused platform in the market and with its unique business model, where the customer pays a small fee at checkout, it saves businesses thousands of dollars a month in fees alone. With an ecosystem of ways to sell, users range from brick-and-mortar restaurants and food trucks throughout the country, hospitality powerhouses like The Goodtime Hotel and events including The Rick Ross Car Show.

There's no denying that Latinos contribute to a large part of the U.S. economy, accounting for 80% of new businesses. Harlem Capital released a study that shows that Latino businesses are growing 4.5x faster than the overall U.S. economy. Other companies in the same space have been built off the hard work of its users by charging high setup fees, monthly commissions and processing fees. This initiative will give back to the Latino community, setting businesses up for long-term success, with the goal of making the 1,000 recipients millionaires by the end of it. 

The CASHDROP Latino Equity Fund is accepting applications, with the first round of selections going to restaurants and food trucks that use CASHDROP for 100% of their sales. Interested businesses can review requirements and submit their information for consideration at

The 2023 Global Healing Festival by Embodied Black Girl Returns, Disrupting Grind Culture and Centering Rest

The free one-day festival featuring today's visionary thought leaders will take place online on June 9, 2023

The Global Healing Festival by Embodied Black Girl returns for its fourth annual festival on June 9, 2023. The festival is the first of its kind and nourishes the healing and liberation of Black women and women of color while enlivening culture change and making wellness, somatics and mental health more accessible to the communities that need it most. 

Every year the free grassroots virtual festival attracts thousands of participants around the world, primarily through word of mouth.  

Curated by the global wellness and leadership education platform, Embodied Black Girl, the day-long online, interactive and immersive festival experience, includes in-depth workshops and thought-provoking conversations with today's leading visionary cultural shapers.

This year's theme, The Future is Embodied: The Rest-volution, is an invitation to enter the dream space and leave grind culture behind. In spite of the grim statistics and policies that impact Black women in particular, we root for a vision of joy, hope and self-determination.

In keeping this festival free through the years, our hope is to make wellness, somatics and mental health more accessible to Black women and folks of color and, in turn, create a world where we are seen, held and empowered. In this space, rest is life and our bodies transform into revolutionary portals and oracles for liberation. 

The festival will be hosted by Embodied Black Girl founder Thérèse Cator, who'll be joined by honored guests: 

  • Tricia Hersey, founder of The Nap Ministry and NYT Bestselling Author of Rest is Resistance 
  • Dr. Jennifer Mullan, founder of Decolonizing Therapy and author of the forthcoming book Decolonizing Therapy: Oppression, Historical Trauma and Politicizing Your Practice (W. W. Norton & Company)
  • Tigidankay "TK" Saccoh, founder of The Darkest Hue, a digital platform that centers the experiences and perspectives of dark-skinned Black girls, women, and femmes 
  • Natalee Facey, Resilience Coach and Birth Doula 

The festival will explore questions like…

  • How does rest support our individual and collective liberation?
  • How can we move beyond a cognitive understanding of rest to an embodied knowing of rest?
  • How can we foster deeper embodiment while having difficult and necessary conversations within our family and communities?
  • What dreams are we here to birth and nurture that will support personal and communal thriving?
