Irving ranked in the top 30 U.S. cities for Hispanic entrepreneurs, according to a new study by WalletHub.

U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President Javier Palomarez once described Hispanic entrepreneurs as “America’s business future.”

What’s more, their economic contributions are nothing short of monumental. Since 2012, the more than four million Hispanic-owned businesses in the U.S. have hauled in an extra $144 billion in combined yearly revenue, bumping 2015’s total to $661 billion.

The study examined the 150 most populated cities in the country and weighed factors like highest median annual income for Hispanics and share of Hispanic owned businesses to come up with the list.
