Months after Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico, the island remains in a state of disrepair, and the government won't be able to fix it alone. It will take dedication, hard work, and new ideas to rebuild and empower Puerto Rico, which is exactly what the Startup Societies Foundation (SSF) hopes to achieve. In this solo interview with CEO Joe McKinney, we discuss exactly what a startup society is, the kinds of people it encompasses, and how entrepreneurs, citizens, and politicians can come together to build a new, better kind of economy.
