Diverse Ideas – Nashalee Rodriguez
September 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join the Lubar Entrepreneurship Center and Student Involvement as we welcome Nashalee Rodriguez and her business, Tapas Ricas! This immersive experience involves Latin charcuteries with a Caribe Sabrosa twist.
“My name is Nashalee Rodriguez and I am the owner of Tapas Ricas – a charcuterie board business that I began in September of 2021. Through Tapas Ricas, I have been able to cater a wide variety of Milwaukee Latinx peoples as well as local organizations like LIT MKE, Sixteenth St Clinic, and downtown’s Northwestern Mutual. My goal for Tapas Ricas is to bring my community together over food – a common love language for Latine families; whilst educating and exploring wider ranges of cheeses and meats and being a support for other entrepreneurs.”
Diverse Ideas is a talk series that partners with UWM offices to invite global and local entrepreneurs/community innovators for an intimate chat with UWM students, faculty, and staff. By offering these talks, the LEC hopes to build a larger and more diverse network of students involved in entrepreneurship, including one that spans across disciplines and majors. Speakers share their stories and give advice in an open-forum conversation with attendees. Learn with us how to improve our community and work together to problem-solve.
