We Launched 10X10K Cuba
The launch of the 10X10K Cuba contest, the first international startup competition for Cuban entrepreneurs, was a success. The timely visit of President Obama and the Cabinet to Cuba the week prior generated significant media attention for Cuba and Cuban entrepreneurship. This in turn provoked interest in the summit and the startup competition. The announcement received live coverage from CNN En Espanol, and other coverage by Univision, TechCrunch, and local and international Spanish-language media.
We’re investors, entrepreneurs, and community leaders with experience in over 50 countries and counting. We’re on a mission to eliminate the problem of ‘access to capital’ by unleashing the potential of millions of new startup investors around the world.
