Identifying Your Entrepreneurial Super Power, Marcos Polanco
Every great company begins with one simple thing: an entrepreneur’s vision for something bigger than themselves. In this talk from the Puerto Rico Founder Institute, Marcos Polanco inspires founders to build a company that exemplifies their best skills and embodies their passions and values.
Marcos Polanco is the COO of iCare Medical, a leading biomedical corporation that specializes in the manufacturing and distribution of medical diagnostic devices. He is also the Director of the Puerto Rico Founder Institute as well as one of Silicon Valley’s highest rated mentors. This next year Marcos will be sharing his expertise internationally as he travels to Rio de Janeiro to mentor at our first-ever Brazil chapter.
To help guide entrepreneurs, Marcos suggests they ask themselves these three questions:
- What do you do that never bores you?
- What do you do that doesn't seem like work?
- What are you doing when you are at your best?
Once a founder’s most prominent skills are identified, Marcos says “When your skills are aligned with your vision of your dream company, suddenly it all comes together...Forget the self-imposed limitations, the canvas you have to work with is boundless.”
To hear more from Marcos join him this Spring for the first-ever Rio Founder Institute.

Those who apply by Janurary 13th get to take the admissions test for free and are eligible for the Female Founder Fellowship.
