S.K Ripstein INC
S.K. Ripstein Enterprises Inc. has been crossing geographic barriers and handling international entertainment since the year 2000. Both the diversity of Hispanics in the USA and other global trends have led to the prosperity of diverse Latin American cultures. The fact that USA Hispanics represent the fastest growing group of movie theatre attendees, has helped make S.K. Ripstein Inc. a vital promotional tool for the entertainment industry.
Our priority is to promote the expansion of cultural diversity through entertainment material, be it via film, TV, plastic arts, literature, general media, new products and projects, etc. These market needs motivated the birth of S.K. Ripstein Enterprises, Inc. to fill this niche as a complete world-class company.
We offer a new focus on total quality of content import/export, talent, and events. We get the best business results for our customers through our new innovative focus on entertainment in the New Era.
For us, it’s fundamental to offer value-added elements. Of course, we also add the human touch to our services: use of celebrities (called “stars”) in charitable events like fundraisers for the less fortunate, the most needed, and even for ecology. Sometimes our daily lives make us forget to help those in need, and for our firm, it is a key goal, which is made easier with our contacts in the industry.
Our Mission is:
• To continue to export the best of our culture to foreign markets.
• To import the best foreign entertainment to the USA.
• To allow this entertainment and intellectual exchange to help combine the industry’s best!
