Carolina Acosta is the founder and CEO of Tragos, the party game for Latinos by Latinos. She spearheads the Tragos product development and partnership initiatives, while wearing many other hats alongside her all-female and Latinx remote team.
Carolina is mostly known for her perfectionism and keen attention to design detail. These traits served well throughout her 5 years in product and design strategy consulting at Lumenary, a design agency based in NYC. Carolina has worked with over 20 startups to launch their brands and products, acting as producer, creative director, project manager, and client liaison.
After working with her partner, John Lim, to launch Azn Flush – the Asian card game equivalent to Tragos – Carolina launched Tragos in 2019 to build a product that spoke to her own interests and her identity as a US-born Latina. What started off as a fun experiment has turned into a passion that grows more each day, inspiring Carolina to build Tragos into a national brand and voice that will support and empower Latinos in the US with more opportunities in housing, education, and entrepreneurship.
Tragos is currently the #1 party game for Latinos and has raised over $20,000 for community driven organizations such as Black Lives Matter, Helping Hands of Puerto Rico, The Immigrant Worker Safety Net Fund, and more.
When Carolina isn’t working on Tragos, she spends time with loved ones in NY and NJ, or attempts to work out and read more. In between, she is always planning her next travel destination. Carolina has a BFA in Communication Design from Parsons, The New School.
Carolina Acosta was recently included in Forbes 30 Under 30 class of 2021 for the creation of Tragos.
