What is ConPRmetidos?

ConPRmetidos’ started as a response to the massive exodus of people leaving Puerto Rico due to the economic recession. Initially focused on connecting Island residents with Puerto Ricans in the diaspora, the organization created a bridge between professionals overseas and the growing entrepreneurial ecosystem on the ground. However, after hurricanes Irma and Maria struck PR in 2017, ConPRmetidos raised $4M and decided to temporarily shift their focus. In order to maximize their impact, they realized they needed to collaborate with community leaders to identify immediate local emergency needs. Based on their findings, they invested in projects that provided thousands of Puerto Ricans with emergency food, water, communications, power, shelter, and a helping hand.

Now, two years after the hurricanes, they are collaborating with local leaders to create development projects that are rethinking entire local industries like coffee, agriculture and fishing. Their new direction centers on diverse partnerships that create innovative social impact projects working towards the economic sustainability of the Island. ConPRmetidos’ ongoing mission focuses on building a stable, productive and self-sufficient Puerto Rico. Their goal is to create a global model of community-driven success where residents have access to growth opportunities and a good quality of life.

For ConPRmetidos, true sustainable recovery for Puerto Rico — that creates permanent change and helps the Island thrive — takes a strong sense of commitment to our communities and our people.
