We will walk approximately 1.5 Miles - So be ready for exciting conversations as you submerge yourself into the what's becoming the tech corridor of Santurce. We will spend on average 10 to 15 minutes speaking with startup community leader at each location. We'll also see their facilities and learn about their services. Guaranteed that we will bump into different members of the community, be it investors, entrepreneurs, free lancers, and realtors; so have your questions about PR ready.
My name's Gustavo Diaz Skoff and I grew up in the Startup Ecosystem in Puerto Rico.' At 18 years of age, I founded the first youth-led non profit organization for aspiring entrepreneurs in Puerto Rico with the support of 3 Government agencies. During my time at the the #1 School For Entrepreneurship (Babson College), I studied and produced the only non-government commissioned study of Act 20 & Act 22. At 24 years of age, I've built my fair share companies (crash & burned them), worked with a VC Firm, led last-mile data gathering efforts with 78 mayors in Puerto Rico post Hurricane Maria, and performed some pretty rad stuff. Ask me anything about Puerto Rico as we explore a portion of our community. I'll be happy to point you towards the right people as we develop our island into a predominant location for new startups & investors.
