Isabel Rullán is Co-Founder and Managing Director of ConPRmetidos, a nonprofit think-and-do tank that creates public-private partnerships to advance the economic development of Puerto Rico. With a group of other millennial leaders, she co-founded the organization in 2012 and, since then, has been recognized as a pioneer in the implementation of social innovation practices in the Island.
In 2015, ConPRmetidos successfully launched the Puerto Rico Global Initiative in New York City, Washington DC, Miami, and San Juan. Puerto Rico Global is a network that empowers Puerto Rican communities around the world by promoting collaboration in the Island and abroad; attracting investments to the Island; and attracting and retaining top-notch talent to spur the innovation and growth of local industries.
Isabel has participated from important community events such as: the "ANIMUS Summit", the "H3 Conference", "Cenas Empresariales", and the "Puerto Rico/Puerto Ricans: A Diaspora Summit" that recently took place in the Center of Puerto Rican Studies of Hunter College in New York City. She is also a 2016 Fellow of the Rockefeller Foundation Global Program on Social Innovation.
Prior to this, Isabel worked as the Unit Production Manager of the Puerto Rican documentary “Mala Mala” that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and that later played in Fine Arts theaters in Puerto Rico. She also participated from several internships in the public and private sector, including: the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration Office in Washington D.C., Pan American Grain and as Special Assistant to the U.S. Ambassador at the U.S. Embassy in El Salvador. Isabel studied Business Administration at the University of Puerto Rico in Mayagüez and then transferred to the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico, where she graduated from Business Management.
