Meet our Founder
CEO OF COBIAN MEDIA, FATHER OF 2, AND ENTREPRENEURIAL JUNKIE
Carlos R. Cobián is an accomplished entrepreneur recognized for developing successful businesses in Latin America and for his forward-thinking, innovative and collaborative approach to business.
In 1995 Carlos co-founded Puerto Rico’s first youth and experiential marketing agency. Empire Entertainment broke free from traditional advertising, employing performance-based marketing methods and promoting entrepreneurship among millennials, paving the way for a new wave of creative promotions. Among Empire’s clients were world-class brands such as Coors Light, Bacardi, Toyota, Pepsi and Hilton Hotels.
During the past 20-plus years, Carlos has owned restaurants, bars/nightclubs and a mobile technology company called Wireless Idea—a pioneer in the use of the mobile devices as marketing tools that allowed companies to monetize their content in 17 countries in Latin America.
In 2014 Carlos founded Cobian Media to provide cutting-edge digital marketing services and produce special events designed to inspire and empower individuals, businesses and entire industries to grow and reach their highest potential. Cobian Media is the force behind acclaimed events such as Animus Summit, H3 Tech Conference and Agrohack.
Carlos is founder and president of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) in Puerto Rico, board member of Fundación Banco Popular’s advisory board and the San Juan Tech Meetup, advisor for the Puerto Rico-based, global accelerator Parallel18, and mentor for the Founder Institute of Silicon Valley, which recognized him as 2015 Startup Ecosystem Champion. In 2016, Carlos was named Business Person of the Year by the Puerto Rico Chamber of Commerce and recognized with the Top Management Award in the Entrepreneur category by SME Puerto Rico. In addition, he was honored to be profiled by Forbes as “a leader in the new Puerto Rican creative economy.”
As to the future, Carlos plans to continue to grow and expand his business and, more importantly, develop innovative, progressive and collaborative ways to reach as many people and businesses as possible and help them succeed in today’s global economy.
