Nina Vaca is a successful entrepreneur who started an IT staffing company, Pinnacle Group, in her living room at a young age. Today, the company is expanding globally. Vaca’s determination not to let obstacles get in her way is why she was the ideal person to speak at the Hispanic Scholarship Fund’s Entrepreneurship Summit. Besides describing her personal entrepreneurial story, Nina Vaca told the group they have a civic responsibility to help others once they achieve success.
A sought-after speaker, Nina Vaca spoke at the Women of Innovation Summit in Texas on April 3, 2019. She kept the same theme; inspiring women to overcome roadblocks while helping others.
For Vaca, helping others is not just about inspiring future entrepreneurs; she and Pinnacle Group associates provided holiday meals for families at the Cena-En-El-Barrio event late last year. Only a few days earlier, Vaca was at the United Nations Headquarters to accept the Impacto Latino Award for her contributions to the Latino business community. Nina Vaca’s parents came to the U.S. from Ecuador in the 1960s. She’s never forgotten her roots, raising $100,000 for Ecuadorian earthquake victims by running a triathlon. She credits her parents’ strong work ethic and the desire to own their own business for making her a flourishing entrepreneur who never forgets her civic responsibilities.
