I was forced to bootstrapped CodersLink because I did not have a formal background and I was a foreign national. Therefore, I was considered a risky investment. But thankfully, that has shaped CodersLink into what we are today.

What problem are you trying to solve?
We are making it easier for tech companies in the U.S. to get connected to qualified developers in Latin America (LATAM).
What has been your biggest hurdle as an entrepreneur? What lessons have you learned?
Getting started has been the biggest hurdle. Even getting the first five customers was an obstacle since we did not have a track record.
What resources have helped you the most as an entrepreneur and as a business?
My team, mentors, referrals, our attitude and drive to always find a way of solving problems, and our entrepreneurial and business books have significantly helped us succeed.
What advice do you have for first-time entrepreneurs?
