MIAMI BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Happy Tax, the only franchisor offering a concierge, on-demand model in
the tax preparation industry, is pleased to announce that the company’s
founder and CEO, Mario Costanz, has been selected for participation in
the third cohort of the prestigious Stanford Latino Entrepreneur Leaders
Program (SLELP3).

Only 77 entrepreneurs from across the United States out of hundreds of
applicants were chosen to be a part of the six-week program. The program
was jointly developed by Stanford Graduate School of Business faculty
and The Latino Business Action Network (LBAN).

“I am eager to access this rich cluster of learning resources and
opportunities, which will ultimately make their way into Happy Tax’s
growth initiatives, and further, shared with the Happy Tax community of
franchisees, independent contractors and team members,” explains Happy
Tax founder and CEO Mario
Costanz
. “Likewise, I look forward to sharing the innovations in
service that Happy Tax already has and is continuing to develop with the
members of the Stanford and LBAN communities.”

SLELP3 is designed to help growth companies to continue scaling their
businesses. It provides participants with valuable concepts and
frameworks, enhanced access to capital, personal mentorship from
successful entrepreneurs and investors, and a better understanding of
the capital resources necessary to grow their businesses, create jobs,
and build a stronger economy.

Participants were chosen based on their drive, work ethic, and ambition
to help develop communities across the United States.

“Our mission is to provide world class tax preparation services and
franchise opportunities to anyone interested in earning additional
money, increasing their revenue or building a scalable business,” adds
Costanz. “I’m excited to join this program because our system that
leverages the power of working smart, not hard, was recognized by the
leaders at the number one ranked graduate school in the country for
2016. We remain committed to continuing to provide better support to
business owners and consumers with our superior technology, amazing
people and exceptional experience.”

In related news, Happy Tax is announcing the strengthening of our
commitment to the Hispanic community with 2 new key additions to our
team. Happy Tax has appointed Jason Jimenez as Director of Strategic
Initiatives. Mr. Jimenez is a prominent Hispanic entrepreneur based out
of Houston, Texas. He has roots in the insurance industry which has
great synergies with our industry changing model. Happy Tax has also
awarded their Area Representative rights for Tampa, Florida to Mary
Fonts. Ms. Fonts has been in the tax preparation industry for decades
and saw Happy Tax as a way to invest with a company that shared her
values and is at the cutting edge of technology.

Happy Tax helps entrepreneurs meet the needs of today’s increasingly
tough regulatory requirements, without the burden of preparing taxes
themselves, hiring costly staff or signing risky leases.

ABOUT HAPPY TAX

Shaking up the $19 billion tax preparation industry, Happy Tax’s
disruptive model was born out of frustration with unreliable,
under-qualified tax preparers with no licensing or certification and as
little as five days of tax training. Happy Tax is designed to bridge the
gap between the high-quality, pampered and convenient customer service
that consumers want, and accurate, reliable and professional tax returns
prepared by CPAs with a minimum of 5 years of training and experience.
Happy Tax offers franchises to those wanting to earn additional income
and build their own business. Utilizing its patent-pending technology
and processes, Happy Tax franchisees are able to operate with low
overhead and increased flexibility.
