CreoEnTi translates from Spanish to English as “I Believe In You.”
This is the message that we want to convey to our community, to our youth, to our scholars, to our entrepreneurs, to our educators, to our innovators, and to our young professionals.
Through all of our platforms, we’ve built a network of action-oriented and progressive Latinos, and a community of highly committed Cultura Ambassadors and #CreoEnTi Ambassadors.
SVLShopLatino is a “Latino-owned Business Directory” where we feature our #CreoEnTi Business Ambassadors. ShopLatino is also a “Call-To-Action” where we ask our community to intentionally support Latino-owned businesses, specifically those listed in our SVLShopLatino Business Directory.
Kaiser Permanente San Jose Medical Center has had the great pleasure of working with Silicon Valley Latino (SVL) over the years. The SVL team has allowed us to produce instrumental, area-wide videos that showcase our people, our places, and our culture. SVL helped us capture the essence of who we are through these videos, and have allowed us to cultivate stories that will last a lifetime. Working with the SVL team is always a pleasure. Their professionalism, expert consultation, ability to listen to our needs, and provide high-quality solutions are the reasons why we continue to do business with them. I would recommend SVL to any company or organization who is looking to enhance and showcase their brand. We are highly satisfied with the products and services they have provided to us.

Alex Ontiveros and his team at SVL are great and reliable resources for us. They have supported a number of our media and marketing efforts, each time rendering successful outcomes and yielding the highest quality of media assets and marketing service. We've come to greatly depend on SVL.
Alex and his team are reliable, creative, thoughtful, always treating our brand with great care and working with my staff with a client-first approach. I recommend SVL highly.

“ I am so honored to be working with the combined power team of SVL/SKC. As we launched our new and improved organization, the team exceeded our expectations in terms of connecting us to the appropriate media channels and making a huge impact to our launch! The team’s can-do attitude and the feeling that this was their own business launch made for one of the best experiences I have had with a marketing and public relations partner. I look forward to their further success and how we can work together going forward”.

Silicon Valley Latino’s network has empowered my business, Thank you!
I’m Grateful to be part of the “Inspire Higher Tour” and inspired by their Fireside Chats featuring powerful Latino leaders. It’s organizations like Silicon Valley Latino that help Latinos reach their goals. It's definitely taken my business and network to the next level. Events like their “Annual College Declaration Day” is confirmation that Silicon Valley Latino has created a foundation for Latinos to thrive.

In 2012, when I moved from Princeton, New Jersey to San Jose, I was fortunate to meet a group of valuable people who helped me connect with other Latino Professionals in the bay area. I had the pleasure of observing Silicon Valley Latino’s work almost since its inception in 2011, and since then I’ve been supportive of their initiatives and active beneficiary of their high quality gatherings. Their work as a media outlet featuring positive stories about our community is unparalleled. Their community empowerment initiatives focused on inspiring our youth and creating a college-going culture through the “Inspire Higher” and “College Declaration Day” programs are exceptional. Recently, in partnership with SVL, SJCC launched the “Latino Leaders Fireside Chat Series” and the “#CreoEnTi campaign.”
I am proud of our joint work in the areas which help us deliver social change and transformation through education. I look forward to continued collaborations between SVL and San Jose City College.
SVL, I believe in you. #CreoEnTi

Silicon Valley Latino has been an invaluable partner as our organization continues to broaden our reach and deepen our impact in the community. From branding to marketing to video production, SVL has been a great resource for developing high-end creative and cost-effective ways to tell our story and promote our services. As a nonprofit working toward eliminating the health disparities Latinos face, it is important to us that we work with organizations that share our values and that care about the clients we serve. SVL not only shares our commitment to making our community a healthier place in which to live but they also demonstrate this care through their own excellent programming and events. We most recently partnered with SVL on our successful National Latino Cancer Summit and we look forward to working with SVL on future events.

SVL has made a substantial impact on our community with its programs encouraging education, business networking opportunities and positive stories about Latinos.
Social, economic and political empowerment has occurred as a result of the programs that SVL has developed, which serve the student, business, professional and the entire community. They have inspired students to go to college, promoted cultural events, created business networking and role models to mentor our young people.
SVL has and continues to provide its great positive contributions to our community.
— Tony Quintero - Producer & Community Leader
As the founding principal of the Luis Valdez Leadership Academy, a college prep charter high school in East San Jose, CA that serves over 90% 1st generation Latin@ students, we are always looking for powerful role models to place in front of our students. Silicon Valley Latino's Inspire Higher panels have allowed our students the transformational opportunity to learn from Latin@ leaders in the tech industry. Their stories and lived experiences provide both inspiration and hope to my students. My students are able to see themselves in the panelists, which further allows them to dream big and further embrace the power of education. I would highly recommend for any principal to host SVL's Inspire Higher panel if given an opportunity."

SVL is a great partner who understands our vision of our restaurant. We are always looking for partners that understand our customers, culture and branding. SVL, has done a great job connecting with outreaching bay area customers, who enter our restaurant as strangers and leave feeling as family. Our mantra is to do business with each other or find business for one another. Their message on video is straight to the point, clear, engages the audience. They have a creative vision which matches the theme of our restaurant. SVL has been a bridge for us at Agave Uptown to keep building relationships with our current and new customers. SVL's social media and PR work is top notch and professional. Their passion and commitment and values completely align with ours at Agave Uptown.
We highly recommend SVL as they listen & understand where you want to go with your business.
