I am sometimes quite critical of what's going on in Puerto Rico, mostly the situation makes me shake my head in amazement.
But at the same time, I am also aware of the amount of entrepreneurship and the active startup community in the island. It is as active today as it ever was.
One time I told my wife while driving through an avenue in Caguas about the amount of small businesses that were lined up one after the other.
It's true that today many of them are having a very difficult time, but at the time, I was appreciative on the sight. I also still remember one time at Home Depot in Caguas in which there was not a parking space to be seen. For most residents, this is a "revolu" (or mess). My comment on this was slightly different, I said: "I know a couple of folks in NJ that would die to see this sight at their properties.".
So, one night, after the S&P downgraded the bonds, I asked my wife, is there still opportunity in Puerto Rico. It seems that according to Mr. Prouty, the answer is yes.
