About Startup Cuba

Hola a todos!  We exist because we believe that our cultural differences make us beautiful and the more videos we can create to share those types of stories, the better our world will be. 

Oh, and because we'd all be happier if we had more besos. Lots more besos.

[If you want to skip right to the videos, scroll all the way down ⬇️.]



Basically, we're a crowd-funded (gracias!!!) documentary video gang that started in 2018 with our nine-episode series on Facebook, Startup Cuba, to tell the stories of Cuba's cuentapropistas (entrepreneurs) - These people are amazing and the world needs to know about them! Fortunately, in our first 24 months we drove over 8 million video views on social media! Holy S#!t!!!

So now, in addition to more Cuba stories, we're on a journey to use the power of video to tell Latin American stories everywhere from Puerto Rico, Mexico & Ecuador to Miami, LA and NYC and all the places in between.



Everything we create is focused on one ethos: "The more beautiful Latin American culture we share, the closer we can become. We all want the same things - any differences we have are what make the world so f&#king beautiful."  


(We think it's important to jump a lot.)

We are grateful for our Patreons' support and invite you to join us as we travel, experience and listen. Dance, eat and drink (then we wish we hadn't). Our stories are lighthearted yet often profound. They're eye opening, without realizing that your eyes are being opened.  

Oh, and fun.  We have fun.  And you will too.  



Most importantly, becoming one of our Patreon members means that you enable us to continue to tell these important stories - stories that you want and believe should be told. It helps us pay our team members the wages they deserve, get equipment we need and feed everyone's mouths when we're in foreign countries making videos. Our Patreons are truly part of our crew -  We'll give you exclusive invites to connect with us by live online video chats and real life events & meetups. Plus, we'll share all our juicy, exclusive behind-the-scenes video content of our productions, our interviews, our travels and sometimes our sleep.  

Si.  We'll show you us sleeping. Aren't you lucky.  It. Is. Amazing.  (Actually, that's not true *at all*. We don't know if it's amazing because we're always asleep when the videos are made. We'll show you any way so you can tell us.)





Most of all though, this is about joining us on our journey to create content that our divided world needs. It's also about your playing a role in making a little difference by showing the real side of Latin American culture that we all know is BEAUTIFUL - A counter balance to the negative stories and stereotypes portrayed by today's politicians, media and discourse.

Essentially, we want to save the world and eats lots of Cuban sandwiches and taco al pastor along the way. Join us?  

¡Ven con nosotros!

P.S. Everybody gets besos.  Everybody.
