Our Story

Jose Dreamed of OYE.

J Balvin is our co-founder and Chief Dream Officer. From the streets of Medellin to Silicon Valley, local radio stations to the world’s largest stages, Jose is our partner in purpose, helping us all to dream big, listen, and grow together.

Mario and Patrick lead the team

Neighborhood pals from Pacifica, California, Mario and Patrick co-founded OYE with Jose and journalist Isaac Lee. Together, they channel their experience in social entrepreneurship, culture, and tech to help OYE grow with care.

Carlos, Jose’s therapist, leads our wellness council

One of the leading therapists and researchers in Latin America, Carlos has personally guided Jose through his journey towards emotional wellness, creativity, and impact. Now he’s channeling his expertise toward helping people feel better, and get better at feeling, with OYE.

Together, we’re feeling into the future.
