Who Is SOMOS?

SOMOS is ambitious. Intentionally ambitious. Collective heart palpitation and joyful deep breath!

The broad strengths of our foundational team and of the potential collaborators who attended the first organizing committee meeting bloom from an array of experiences in young professionals and civic engagement groups, arts, culture, tech and entertainment organizations, food, beverage and hospitality, business and nonprofit sectors, communications, marketing and tourism industries.
