SAYP Entrepreneur Spotlight
June 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
SAYP Entrepreneur Spotlight is our first Professional Development event of the year! We will be visiting with millennial-owned business owners to learn about how they got started, struggles they encountered, and how they ultimately achieved success in their ventures. Our first featured entrepreneur and business is Jose Ramon Campos of Commonwealth Coffeehouse and Bakery.
More about Jose:
When Jose Ramon Campos and Jorge Herrero, opened in January of 2015, they never envisioned a secondary location, let alone ten, sprawling around San Antonio.
Originally from Mexico, Campos grew up in San Antonio, attending Antonian College Prep and later Southern Methodist University studying political science, economics, and finance. For some time, he wasn’t sure he would pass his required French language classes at SMU but he was determined to push forward.
He spent a semester in Nantes, France, and voila! He graduated in 2012, embarking on a career that took him as far as the U.S. Embassy in Jordan and as near as San Francisco working for an investment firm.
Campos is most proud of the fact that CommonWealth’s success has allowed him to play a role in serving its community by partnering with local nonprofits to further their missions.
