Other than a plate of ropa vieja and a bathtub full of pastelitos, what else should we include in our next project about Cuban food?
We’re starting to tell the story but not without you! Give us input and join our project.

From day one we made the decision that including you in our production process is the (only) way to go. It’s more fun. Plus, the more brains we have involved the better it’ll be. We’re not always the sharpest pencils in the pack but we’re smart enough to know that we’re making this film for you.

Well, Zuzy’s pretty sharp. I’m a different story.

“But first; we want to know if we’re even making something you care about.” 

Intelligence aside, we’ve got some SUPER cool surprises up our sleeves. First though, if you have a minute, tell us below which of the following topics most interests you. We’ll use the results of this poll to shape our film’s direction.

Gracias, abrazos y por supuesto… besos para ti!

Ken Deckinger is the co-founder and CEO of Startup Cuba and the executive producer and host of its namesake docuseries. A native of South Florida, Ken has been an entrepreneur for his entire professional career. Previously he was co-founder and CEO of HurryDate, pioneering the global concept of speed dating to 45 cities throughout the US, UK and Canada. HurryDate eventually evolved into online dating and was acquired by Spark Networks, the parent company of ChristianMingle.com and JDate.com. Ken is a graduate of Boston College and the University of Florida, where he was honored with the University’s Alumni Entrepreneur of the Year Under 40 award and sits on the Board for the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. He actively advises entrepreneurs and is a two-time protagonist of a Harvard Business School case study. Ken’s filmmaking and journalistic journey is inspired by a love of travel and authentic connections with other cultures. He believes that the more we know about each other, through stories, the closer we can become — thus the mission of Startup Cuba: to amplify the voices of the people sharing stories in the Latinx space. After living in New York City for 15 years, he encouraged his wife to move their family to Miami to get back to his South Florida roots. Needless to say, it was a short discussion and he and his family now call Boston, where his wife grew up, their home.
