“We chose Costa Rica to establish and grow our business, because it has exceptional engineering talent,” said Forum Desai, Co-Founder of Mismo, that helps companies hire, onboard, and nurture engineering teams in Latin America.

She pointed out that Costa Rica’s proximity to the United States, the time zone, excellent universities and communication make the country the perfect combination for Mismo’s clients, which are mostly Silicon Valley-based companies.
