When you hear stories about people leaving the Island in search of opportunities outside Puerto Rico, it makes us sad, but when you hear stories as the one we are about to tell you it makes us thrilled with joy.
A talented group of young people got together a few months ago and brainstorm about the idea of doing their own magazine. What? In this economy! They had the guts and they did it. They gathered resources, they got together as a team, they looked for talented people to be part of their group and VERSUS magazine was born.
Last Thursday was the VERSUS launching event and we were there. Maybe the VERSUS team don't know the positive effect their actions have to young entrepreneurs, they are so humble when they speak about "their project", but the domino effect is huge. The event that took place at the Puerto Rico Museum of Contemporary Art was packed. Everybody was talking about how good was to have a genuine new magazine, another media for clients to show their products, another media for talented people to show their ideas and a different point of view to look at. After all, it's called: VERSUS.
It's not another lifestyle magazine, it's a stunningly beautifully designed magazine with great content and 100% made in Puerto Rico, with both printed and on-line platforms.
Let us receive it with open arms and continue supporting great ideas like VERSUS. Enjoy the first cover with Denise Quiñones.
