Caribbean Digital Platforms

$260,000 goal

Campaign created 8 months ago
El Morro Technologies was started with a unique perspective for developing digital platforms for local business in the Caribbean Region. Business solutions  without the high price-tag and with local support.

As a resident of Puerto Rico and mother of 5 kids, I am well aware of the limitations customers in my region face for online purchases, from limited online stores willing to ship to the region to high-shipping charges. For local business, the high fees to adopt digital platforms and lack of local support is enough not to pursue offering their products and services online. Making them unable to compete with big supply sellers already online.

With customized digital platforms and local support, business will have the opportunity to extend their offerings to a broader audience online. Residents, will have a larger variety of stores to purchase from, without leaving the home and visitors could save more time and do more activities  while having their online purchases from local stores delivered to their hotel or cruise.

We started small with our local grocery store and soon many customers from my neighbourhood wanted to be part of the beta program and purchase products online. We are ready to scale our software products and provide a platform for all local business in the Caribbean. So far, we have been self funding all operations, but the company needs more access to money in order to expand our operations and begin enhancing our offerings with new technologies while reaching each one of the islands from the Region and creating new jobs.

My mission is to raise money for operations and continue the development of free digital platforms for local business in the Caribbean. After hurricanes Irma and Maria passing through the Caribbean our progress was greatly affected by a flooded home-office, lack of electricity and communications among other situations. Our lives have changed significantly since then, making us find new and creative ways to continue working on solutions that help small local business increase revenues by offering products and services online not only to the residents and visitors of the Caribbean, but to the world.

We have set the beginning of 2018 as our starting point for scaling and anyone that feels identified with this cause should contribute, mothers, all business specially those selling products, travelers, IT companies and   citizens of the world. The support will mean making a dream come true while helping the local business by bringing a unique perspective to the economy of the Caribbean Region.
