Four days to go for the Philippine Startup Week 2019—the first large-scale collaborative initiative by multiple government and private agencies showcasing the Filipino startup community.

Philippine Startup Week is made possible through the collaboration of Department of Science and Technology (DOST), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), QBO Innovation Hub, and various private agencies and community enablers.

“As the first-of-its kind collaboration for Filipino startups, the Philippine Startup Week is more than just a gathering, it’s a celebration and a recognition of how far Filipino startups have come and how further they can go,” says DOST Secretary Fortunato T. Dela Peña.  “It’s a testament to the government’s commitment to invest in ideas that have the potential to become the country’s next big-time successful companies.”

Happening on November 18 – 22, 2019, the five-day conference consists of a three-day main summit from November 20-22 at the Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria, Ortigas, Pasig City, which will host three main events: DOST’s ‘TBI Summit’, DICT's ‘Tech Advantage’, and DTI’s ‘Slingshot’ which will also be held in Dumaguete on November 19 and in Bohol on November 21.

Meanwhile, over 40 nationwide community events, and four-night fests will happen simultaneously throughout the week. The conference sets out to highlight the various sectors and entities contributing to the growing Philippine startup ecosystem.

One of the community events includes a session organized by Monster Hub Philippines together with UnionBank of the Philippines, RAX Automation Suite, SERVIO Technologies, and Founder Institute to celebrate and recognize the participants who took part in Inc.'s pitching and hackathon initiatives and showed exemplary competencies and creativeness. This session also serves as an avenue for existing enterprises to network with these startups and software developers for business matching opportunities. To register for this event, click here.

To strengthen the government’s commitment to support Philippine startups, President Rodrigo Duterte recently signed the Innovative Startup Act (Republic Act No. 11337).
