The Hispanic population in the United States is the fastest growing ethnic group. Over the last forty years, the Hispanic population has increased from six percent to more than 20 percent of the total population. Men like Danilo Diaz Granados are taking advantage of that change by catering to that vast market by offering them products that suit their new position in the social structure of the United States.
Danilo Diaz Granados is a graduate of Babson College in Wellesley Massachusetts. He earned a degree in economics and honed his entrepreneurial skills while he attended that school. Granados moved to Miami and became an investment advisor in the Hispanic market. While he was helping his clients invest, he noticed there was a void in the retail market for people like his clients that had money and liked the finer things in life. Thanks to completing some high-dollar investments for clients, Granados had enough money to start a retail business that sold fine art, expensive jewelry, exotic automobiles, and other expensive merchandise in one store. Danilo called his business Toys for Boys. Toys for Boys was a hit for wealthy Hispanic men that didn’t have enough time to shop but had enough money to buy whatever they wanted.
But Granados didn’t stop there. It’s clear from Twitter, Danilo always loved films and filmmaking. He took several courses while he was in college, and he always said he would open a film company when he had enough money to do so. Granados founded Edge of Glory Films, CrunchBase tells us, a film company that showcased the interests and the challenges that Hispanics face in the 21st century. Danilo is the editor, production director, promoter and distributor for his company.
The investment industry has always been an important part of his life so, in 2015, Granados went to work for Fireman Capital Partners in Miami. Granados is in charge of researching global issues that influence hedge fund investments, and the development of innovative startup businesses in the Hispanic community. Danilo also does environmental analysis work as well as researching social and demographic factors that change the direction of investment opportunities and retail ventures.
