Using Entrepreneurship To Battle Inequality
In 2017, Tony moved to Puerto Rico after witnessing the devastating effects of the natural disaster, Hurricane Maria, that struck the American commonwealth. After seeing the extensive damage to the island, Tony Delgado decided to step up and make a difference to do something to uplift and empower his people. Tony knew that if Puerto Rico was perfect for digital nomads, it could also be the perfect place for locals to thrive and make money online as well. In early 2018, Tony moved to Puerto Rico to help restore and rebuild the communities, handing out water and supplying any types of aid rendered necessary for the Puerto Rican people.
From Newark To Puerto Rico
Before he moved to the island, Tony worked with an initiative in New Jersey called Newark Kids Code lead by Darrin Sharif, Director of Operations for the Urban League of Essex County. Darrin was introduced to local government serving as the Chief of Staff to the current United States Senator Cory A. Booker when Senator Booker served on the Newark Municipal Council from the Central Ward. Working alongside Darrin at Newark Kids Code, Tony Delgado was inspired to bring a technology education movement to his home country of Puerto Rico. Since relocating his business to the island, Disrupt has touched many people across the island, bringing significant amounts of joy and happiness to the people after wanting to make a difference. Tony is not just a philanthropist but a tech and coding expert. Tony Delgado plans on building a school and launching the first Coding Bootcamp in Puerto Rico to teach young Puerto Rican’s the current state of the digital economy, entrepreneurship, and the idea that all you need to succeed is WiFi and a dream.
Building SXSW To The Caribbean
Tony is not stopping there. After moving to Puerto Rico, Tony had a crazy idea. Imagine we bought together with the greatest tech-entrepreneurs and thought leaders in the world. What if we gave them a platform to teach and share their experiences? Some would move to Puerto Rico, some would invest in Puerto Rico, but everyone would have the opportunity to impact Puerto Rico for the better in there own unique ways. Disruption is exactly what happened. In 2018, Tony created a seven-day festival called Disrupt Week that aimed to do for San Juan, Puerto Rico, what South By South West did for Austin, Texas. Tony then partnered with the University of Puerto Rico to sponsor hundreds of college students to get free tickets to the event and learn from these world-class disruptors.
In March 2020, Tony Delgado partnered up with Luis Rios after he contracted COVID-19 and helped him hosted the first TEDx in Puerto Rico alongside sponsor Bryan Quaranto, CEO of ProprioX to bring disruptive new ideas for the future economy of Puerto Rico. Along with his network, Tony has some powerful speakers in his roster. John Mallot, Grant Cardone, David Meltzer, Jason Capital, and Eric Thomas, just to name a few. Tony Delgado recently partnered with fellow Puerto Rico resident and host of the Entrepuers Of Fire Podcast, John Lee Dumas, to release an educational series of masterclasses including an episode called 7 months to 7 figures, where his shares his 15+ years experience into a 40-minute audio experience.
The Latino Wall Street Movement
Latino Wall Street is an initiative Tony started with his fiancé Gaby Berrospi, Forbes council member, financial expert, and capital investor to help Latina women earn extra income from the stock market. The graduate of NYU, Ms. Berrospi, had paid off her student debt by 21 years old. She had joined forces with Alan Burak, a Mexican Hedge Fund Manager in New York, to create Latino Wall Street focusing on their mission to “provide insight, information, and resources to the Latin American community.” The power couple feels that Latinos are an underrepresented part of the finance industry, and they are on a mission to disrupt that.
Now, Latino Wall Street has extended its opportunities for not just Latinas but anybody willing to learn how to invest in the stock market and grow their bank account. They also offer personalized training, courses, and seminars all in Spanish to help you leverage the digital economy from home. Tony and Gaby are now leading a movement to transform the lives of the 400 million people in Latin America and building it into an online educational empire all from there homes in Puerto Rico.
Tony’s mission is clear; to help the youth of Puerto Rico learn entrepreneurship and lucrative opportunities to thrive outside of the traditional career path. Through the Disrupt Foundation; a non-profit incentive that hosts in-person events and workshops in the Puerto Rican startup community, Tony continues to educate and inspire. Nobody said this mission was easy, but this is why Tony Delgado is up for the job. Tony gives entrepreneurs the rare opportunity to share their stories in Disrupt Magazine to provide a voice to up and coming moguls.
