Mark Curry, Sol Partners’ President and CEO, participated in BCMG’s 2016 panel discussion on January 14th at the Vanderbilt Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The forum was designed to discuss how to start a business, or relocate an existing one, to the island. On the panel with Curry was Dennis Frank, Director of Silvergate Bank, and Yancy Wright, CEO of Alternavida.
The moderator of the panel discussion, Jeanelle Alemar, asked the panelists about misconceptions with respect to the Puerto Rico business environment.
“I expected Puerto Rico to be an island economy, but it might as well be a big city in the continental United States,” Curry said. “There are plenty of business resources here and well-educated, hard working professionals.”
All three panelists shared positive, personal experiences with their relocation and were excited to discuss the abundant resources, friendly culture and professional environment that exists on the island.
