The Azcarraga family founded Televisa (NYSE: TV) and Univision, the two largest Spanish language media companies in the world. In addition to its media and entertainment business ventures in Latin America, NALA also has investments in the U.S., including Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the highly successful film series THE TWILIGHT SAGA. NALA Investments is also the parent company of NALA Films, an LA-based financing and production company that focuses on developing and producing commercial stories that empower and uplift audiences. The firm is stage agnostic, investing in seed to growth including follow on capital. NALA prefers to invest in consumer products, real estate, information technology, communications, infrastructure, transportation, energy, media, and entertainment sectors.
