“I think it’s something like less than one third of family businesses that make it from the first to the second generation and half of those don’t make it to the third generation,” says Adriana Cisneros. “I’m the third generation in our business, so I really hope I’m going to be one of those that survives. Who knows, I might completely mess up, but hopefully not.” Messing up seems a rather unlikely prospect going by Adriana’s record to date. The company is in robust health under her leadership. She has recently returned from a whistle-stop tour of Central and South America, where Cisneros Interactive has become the sole reseller of Facebook in nine countries, the only nations on earth where the social media giant will not manage its own sales.

Facebook chose to work through Cisneros Interactive because it already has the region’s most advanced advertising network. “I started Cisneros Interactive, our digital division four years ago,” says Adriana. “Our aim from the outset has been to create the largest advertising network in Latin America and also the smartest. When we began, others were trying to do similar things, but in a very country-specific way. No one really dared to do it pan-regionally. I used the same architecture to build the business that my father did when he brought satellite television to Latin America three decades ago.”

Technology Entrepreneur

Despite a long tradition of technological innovation, Japan hasn’t been known for “unicorn” tech start-ups. But one Japanese-born entrepreneur with a Silicon Valley background has helped to change that.

Just three years after Ryo Ishizuka co-founded Mercari, the virtual marketplace was valued at more than $1bn. In this short film, Ryo reflects on his remarkable journey and how he was able to draw upon Japanese and US business traditions in his pursuit of success.

He also discusses the importance of education and his goal of helping others to have the same sort of opportunities that he had.
