Sol Book Box is a subscription-based service that provides culturally appropriate books and items to children in bilingual families to encourage Spanish-language literacy and cultural preservation.
Last November, a panel of judges selected Vanessa Nielsen as the winner of Véndeme tu Sueño (Pitch Me Your Dream) season 2. Sol Book Box, a female-founded initiative, was the winning business idea.
Nielsen was awarded $30,000 in media support from Univision Arizona and SEED SPOT, one of the top social impact incubators in the United States for entrepreneurs.
“I am so thankful to Univision and SEED SPOT for all they have done to help me grow my business,” said Vanessa Nielsen, winner of Véndeme tu Sueño. “I hope to influence a new generation of Americans who are proud to be here in this country but also have deep ties to their own language and their culture from all parts of the Latino community.”
