Coming Back to Boost the Cuban Startup Scene

About Us

Merchise Startup Circle has been formed to help all those who are involved in the Cuban startup scene in any way. The goal is to create a regular meetup for anyone interested in startups, tech and entrepreneurship.

We can learn from each other, do some interesting projects, recruit, get recruited or at the very least have a seriously geeky conversation with others who actually understand what we're saying.

We'll try to have a mix of tech talks and product discussions, and potentially even a hackathon or two - a hackathon is an event with no specific agenda, everyone comes and "hacks" on their projects.

If you are building - or want to build - a tech startup, if you're a VC, angel investor, or anyone else with an interest in the startup community in Cuba, then this group is for you.

Stripe Atlas and Merchise

On March 18, 2016 Stripe announced the expansion of Stripe Atlas to include Cuban entrepreneurs. Stripe Atlas initially launched on February 24, 2016. During the beta period, entrepreneurs will need an invitation from Stripe or one of their partners around the world, including Merchise Startup Circle in Cuba.

We are still formalizing the rules and the workflow to streamline the application process. We'll keep you posted on our progress. For further enquiries regarding Atlas, please shoot us an email to


The meetup is pretty informal and is a great opportunity to hang out and chat about our projects, get feedback and possibly find co-founders. We'll have pizza and beer whenever possible.

Let's get together and connect in person with our very own meetup. We look forward to meeting you soon at one of our events! We seek sponsors and presenters!
