In Puerto Rico, women entrepreneurs talk about rebuilding the economy
Gigante is co-founder of the Animus Women’s Innovation Summit. It’s an annual conference on women’s entrepreneurship and empowerment. This year’s event was scheduled to take place in San Juan on October 6. That didn’t happen. But less than two months later, the summit is “on” again with a slightly different message.
The goal of the Animus Summit, says Gigante, is to gather female entrepreneurs, investors and small-business owners to connect, trade resources and figure out how they can pull up their collective boot straps on a island where people have been struggling for years.
