Puerto Rico Trade and Export Department

Length of relationship: 6 years

Contribution:

  • Advisor: 2002-2003

Altamente was extensively consulted for insight into business needs of high technology startup firms before the launch of Puerto Rico's first High-Technology Business Incubator. Altamente assisted in the conceptualization of means to ensure sustainability of the project and technology infrastructure needs. In 2004, the Puerto Rico Trade and Export Department was interested in bridging the digital divide for micro and small enterprises by offering a government subsidized e-commerce platform. Commercial bids for this project surpassed $200,000. In a cost saving measure Altamente outlined over several months reliable and extensible open source tools and online business strategies that would make the project viable and sustainable. Thanks to Altamente's input, Puerto Rico Trade and Export Department went on to establish a partnership with the University of Puerto Rico using open source tools to develop this project.
