When I first learned to code, I never imagined its profound impact on my life.
I was 15 years old when I first learned to discovered software development, and I remember the awe of seeing the computer do what I instructed it to do. I still maintain that same fascination that programming awakened many years ago, and that wonder grows as I witness the limitless potential that software provides.
Through the company I founded, INVID, I have discovered the true meaning of innovation. To innovate is to push the boundaries of our technology and create solutions that have a tangible impact on how people work and live. As a B2B company, it might not seem easy to envision our solutions’ real-life outcomes. Still, as our work in Puerto Rico’s Children’s Hospital demonstrates, by enabling organizations to use their time more effectively, they can redirect their efforts and resources to what matters
most: their patients. Similarly, other industries have reaped the benefits of our solutions by mainstreaming and automating processes that would otherwise cost a company time and money. I have seen firsthand that software can solve any business problem, from government agencies to healthcare institutions. And that includes challenges beyond our small island.
The modern age has opened the door to the benefits of innovation, and I believe that is where the future lies. Puerto Rico is fertile land for opportunities and development through the many benefits of our hybrid cultural and political situation. With most of the professional population being bilingual, we have been able to connect Latin America with the United States, allowing infinite opportunities for connection and business. Similarly, Puerto Rico has no shortage of capable professionals ready to work, with some of the best institutions for engineering right here on the island. Now more than ever, these are just a few advantages of doing business in Puerto Rico.
It is why we at INVID are betting on innovation and staying on the island with the ongoing goals of producing meaningful software and great jobs. We will continue encouraging employees to have fun at work while building the best software solutions that impact lives.
