LSA (Latino Startup Alliance) and Hispanicize are lead by tireless entrepreneurs that look at the Latino community not as a token word to accompany a well-known brand, but as thriving and growing community that is part of a multicultural country and not a subset of it and they treat it as such.…Read more
The Silicon Valley has seen the waves of technology innovation from the exuberance of the 1990’s to the boom and bust of the dot com era and to a more sustainable boom of the past few years.

I love the cadence of spoken word, the fast paced hip-hop lyrics, the realism of country music and the stickiness of pop. 14 years ago, when I first came to the US, I listened to NPR while commuting back and forth between Stanford where my wife went to school and San Francisco, where I went to school. I became obsessed with the nuances of pronunciation and I wanted to learn as much as possible about it. I would mimic the pronunciation of the word “what” hundreds of times. I would memorize the cadence and enunciation of their canned intros. I was fascinated with the diversity of accents I would hear during my daily commute.
The market is a summary of the current standing of 50 million Americans that are undervalued. The second point deals with why big brands are confused when targeting this market and the success of Yahoo! US Hispanics. The short answer is that they have folks who understand the general market but do not know how to deal with a differentiated market. We need more people who can relate to the market and evolve with it. Next we deal with how to fix it and why The US Latino Market Needs A Better Elevator Pitch. We analyze the fact that Latinos In Power Have A Responsibility and we are falling behind. We need to band together and claim our rightful place in the new and more colorful America. To do this I argue, that we need to focus in business and not so much in politics. Last but not least, I urge you to believe and then act.…Read more
I am so proud to two very important milestones for Interesante. First, the partnership with NORTEC Collective and second, the newly updated Interesante for iPhone. Yes, it has been only two weeks since the last update as we keep furiously moving forward making our core features better in order to provide a superb user experience.…Read more
I’m very excited to communicate that Interesante for iPhone has an update available in the App Store. There are a few big things that makes this update something that you should check out and download now.
The user interface has been revamped – More swipe gestures to make the experience more natural for the user. We did this so that our users are more comfortable when interacting with the features we’ve just released. Also, we believe that the UI should get out of the way of the user and be measured by its ability to deliver the highest value to the user and not by simply aesthetic beauty. We, however, are shooting for both and striving to achieve a balance of function and beauty. Also, there’s a new gaming component. Every time that there you use Interesante and you press “Interesante”, we track that and rank you against other active users. We do this daily, so if you are dropping in the rankings and want to be #1, you can always try the next day. This is only on the iPhone app. Check it out and let us know what you think.…Read more
