I personally know the great difference we can make thru mentorship, support, and guidance. These actions have the power to make a real, positive, life changing impact.

A corporate helping-hand does make a big difference!
Being headquartered in Chicago’s Pullman District carries a deep personal meaning for SOPRIS. SOPRIS’ CEO and founder emigrated from Valle de Juarez, Jalisco, Mexico to the United States in 1979 and began a new life, a career journey, and pursuit of the American Dream in Chicago’s Southside, Pullman area. As the eldest of eight siblings, he was the first in his family to complete a post elementary school education.
Since then, and especially when starting his engineering studies and career, he personally experienced that mentorship, support, and guidance from a helping-corporate-hand (for example at the world-renown AT&T Bell Laboratories and Lucent Technologies) does make a real, positive and life changing impact.
Believing to have benefitted from such support, SOPRIS looks forward to being a helping-corporate-hand that gives back and contributes to help increase the number of Hispanics and minorities pursuing STEM careers and who aspire to create their own businesses.
