The Hispanic Heritage Business Expo

M&T was a sponsor of this event bringing over 50 small businesses in the Greater Bridgeport area together to exhibit their products and services,  and connect with buyers and numerous vendors. This expo was attended by politicians, community leaders, small business organizations and businesses. It is hosted by the Hispanic Small Business Chamber in Bridgeport. In addition to the businesses, resource partners were present, 10 of which were enrolled in the M&T Bank Bridgeport CT Multicultural Small Business Lab. Seeing these entrepreneurs showcase their businesses, network and build relationships, was a proud moment for our bank.

Fostering relationships within our multicultural communities is incredibly important to M&T Bank.

By hosting this event, M&T has been given the opportunity to better strengthen their relationships within their local communities, in particularly with medical providers within the Indian and South Asian community.

Our executive promise.

Perhaps one of our most pivotal impacts in the past year has been in the service of those constituents in our communities who speak English as a second, or even third or fourth, language. Multi-lingual communities are commonplace; as such, we have embraced the languages of our local communities in our branches—now with branch staff fluent in languages such as Spanish, Korean, Russian, Polish, Mandarin and Burmese. While we recognize that every customer interaction may not be perfect, we can always strive to reduce barriers for customers— whether that be language, accessibility, accommodation or simply being a friendly face.


At M&T, we are commited to investing in infrastructures that enable us to prioritize our deep understanding of multicultural consumers’ financial attitudes and behaviors. We teach them how to budget, how to responsibly own a home and how to grow their business - this is how we make a difference. This is how we uplift our communities.
