Rebuilding from the Bottom Up


A prosperous Puerto Rico that realizes its potential, maximizing the talent, creativity, tenacity, commitment, and passion of its people.

What we do:

We work with communities to co-create economic development strategies using the Visitor Economy as a tool to accelerate reconstruction by developing new businesses, supporting existing businesses, strengthening the social capital, and providing resilience tools, including water filters, micro-grids, satellite wi-fi, and solar lamps.

Our flagship program Bottom Up Destination Recovery Initiative will target 24 communities in the next two years with an aim to:

  • Support 300 businesses so they can grow and expand.

  • Retain or create 1000 new jobs.

  • Increase visitors to our communities, to counteract emigration, which is threatening our communities survival.

Your gift:

With a 5.5M grant from the US Department of Commerce, your contribution will be matched 5:1. Your support will help Puerto Rico rebuild smartly - with a defined strategy for sustainable growth.
