unconventional economic recovery and stability initiatives in Puerto Rico
In disaster response environments, economic stability is a critical component to establishing equilibrium. In this context, there is a need for a deployable entrepreneurial capability that has the ability to operate in more austere and unconventional environments. The idea of rapidly deployable expertise from medical professionals to communications experts is not at all uncommon. But, to date, legitimized professional entrepreneurs have not been organized to form an expeditionary capability, and as a result, this function has not been woven into the overall disaster response ecosystem. That is changing, and Puerto Rico is the test bed.
