Some people complain. Anthony Delgado gets on with solving problems.
He’s a serial entrepreneur whose latest venture has big goals. He wants Puerto Rico to become the Hong Kong of the Caribbean. His mission began in the aftermath of the hurricane damage in Puerto Rico. Anthony wanted to do something to help. His friends told him to send a donation or mail a letter to the Governor. Anthony bought a 1-way ticket to Peurto Rico and hopped on a plane.
The biggest problem was power. Being a tech guy Anthony looks at all the sunshine, and with the help of friends back home he gave away 300 solar panels with batteries. The next biggest problem was the damage to tourism, where a huge number of people had lost their jobs.
Anthony’s answer? Take advantage of the warm weather to host a major tech event. Then he decided to start a coding school in Peurto Rico that combines education with travel.
