about startup cuba

ABOUT US

Startup Cuba is a media platform existing to create world-class, digestible Latinx-oriented content that builds bridges. We got our name from our initial nine-episode documentary series on Facebook about Cuba’s cuentapropistas (entrepreneurs) which drove over 7 million video views in its first twenty-four months. Today, Startup Cuba continues to grow, creating a broader lifestyle content mix in the space between Cuba and the United States as well as Puerto Rico and Latinx segments throughout the country. 

Topics of interest are personality-driven and include pop culture and music, featured current events, climate and the environment, and travel and tastemakers. Working with our network of content creators, writers, and social media influencers throughout the US, Cuba, and Latin America, we leverage our skill sets to inform, entertain and show that at the end of the day our differences are what bring us together.

We’re 100% independent. As a business, we work with top brands to drive authentic, grassroots activations that resonate and drive connection with our audience and theirs. For more information on partnership, advertising, or content creation opportunities, please contact us. We welcome a discussion and send besos (t-shirts) to all—a habit we can’t break.
