A Tale of Two Tastemakers
Kevin Hart is famous for his hard work. Juan Domingo Beckmann is a tequila maker who is known for innovating, defying expectations, and setting new standards. Their love of tequila brought them together, and their pursuit of perfection brought Gran Coramino to the rest of us.
A Partnership Long in the Making
Every purchase of Gran Coramino helps put resources in the hands of aspiring entrepreneurs from under-represented groups in the US and Mexico, in continuation of our founders’ missions to give back to their communities. We’ll donate $1 for every bottle of Gran Coramino we sell to support the limitless potential of new business people and their communities.
Supporting Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses
Bringing big dreams to life is hard work. That’s why we’re proud to be teaming up with a range of nonprofit and foundation partners to help support small businesses and entrepreneurs in the US and Tequila, Mexico. With funding from our $1 per-bottle Gran Coramino give-back program, we aim to bring critical financial resources and learning opportunities to diverse-owned small businesses and entrepreneurs of color, communities that have historically been excluded from opportunities and lacked access to resources. We are proud to be teaming up with our inaugural nonprofit and foundation partners, LISC and the Beckmann Foundation, who will help design and lead these programs in 2022 to deliver community impact.
LISC is a nonprofit organization that drives resources to underinvested places and people working to access opportunities everyone deserves. For more than 40 years, LISC has worked with communities and partners to help close systemic gaps in health, wealth and opportunity and to advance racial equity. Part of LISC’s mission focuses on supporting small BIPOC-owned businesses—the lifeblood of communities and local economies—and knocking down discriminatory barriers to success. With deep roots in 38 urban areas and hundreds of rural counties in the United States, LISC is uniquely positioned to connect diverse entrepreneurs with the resources they need to grow and thrive.
