The island of Puerto Rico is a beautiful destination for anyone because of the amazing sites, views, and beaches. Yes, a lot of it is gorgeous for the most part but when you look deeper into the communities you will see the economic problems it faces. The wealthy have the essentials like water, food, and power and the rest of the people don’t have any of that. Every day it becomes harder and harder to earn any sort of income in Puerto Rico. This sort of problem is the type that needs to be resolved fast.
When Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017, many people went to the island to help the state in their time of need. Amongst those people who lent a helping hand was Tony Delgado. Delgado flew to Puerto Rico so he could help people rebuild their homes and help out any way he could. The outcome of the Hurricane was terrible and many people lost their homes and many people even lost their lives.
While Delgado was there helping, he began to notice the economical problems that were going on. He decided to take on something that was bigger than him so he eventually moved to Puerto Rico full time so he could help. Delgado knew more people needed to make more money so he thought what better way to help than to teach people about entrepreneurship and how to make money online. He knew that if he could teach people valuable skills that would help earn them money that more people would have the essentials like water, food, and power.
He educated thousands of people through his Disrupt Program where not only Delgado but other mentors as well help teach entrepreneurship. Now more people than ever are making money and starting businesses in Puerto Rico which is boosting its economy. Delgado also wanted to help other people and brands throughout the world so he created his very own Marketing Agency. Delgado and his team are able to help grow social media accounts, help out with business launches, help to launch a course, and overall generate more income with his team’s marketing skills.
It seems as if Delgado created a master plan that works perfectly to help out Puerto Rico’s economic problem and it brings in new visitors every single year. He has boosted Puerto Rico’s popularity and economy. With further help from his Disrupt Publication where he shares the story of different entrepreneurs, he continues to spread the word about Puerto Rico, all of its beauty and the growing startup ecosystem on the island.
Puerto Rico is slowly becoming a hot spot for entrepreneurs around the world because of the beautiful views, island lifestyle, and Disrupt Week is a road map for anyone who wants to get a crash course about the ecosystem. Delgado is on a mission to show the world that Puerto Rico is perfect for digital nomads and that is why he hosts Disrupt events every year in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where he gathers incredible speakers throughout the world to share knowledge and give out valuable information to the people who attend. It has been called the 10X of Puerto Rico and the SXSW of the Carribean. Thousands of entrepreneurs attend the event in Puerto Rico because there are so many opportunities at the event to connect and network with the top influencers in the world in a tropical paradise.
