who we are
Our story begins with a promise. A long time ago, a dying father secured a pledge from his 14-year old son to one day return to his birth country and do something big and important for the Cuban people. His son set his heart on fulfilling his father’s vision, but it was not until many years later that our Founder and CEO discovered the purpose to his quest: to rescue, save and share Cuba’s audiovisual cultural heritage. Since the founding of TropixMedia, this has been our Core Purpose. Our team is bound by a passion to find and save people’s unique stories for generations to come.
We are honored that RTVC, the commercial arm of Cuba’s Institute of Radio and Television, has entrusted TropixMedia to digitize and/or commercialize over 500,000 hours of Cuba’s audiovisual patrimony. Our groundbreaking agreement with RTVC in 2016 confers not only rights and benefits, but also an enormous responsibility to serve as guardians of the Cuban people’s most cherished memories and defining moments.
Our Core Purpose infuses all Our Work and reflects our central Mission: “To bring Cuba to the World and the World to Cuba.” As a team, we are bound by our passion for culture, our love of people, and our conviction that our history and cultural heritage define our humanity, enrich our lives, and must be preserved.
