To identify existing supports available for startups in Metro Manila, the Export Marketing Bureau of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), in partnership with QBO Innovation Hub and Startup Pilipinas, initiated a meet up to gather relevant startup stakeholders including public and private incubators, representatives of startups, accelerators, venture capitalists, community builders, angel investors, government, and corporates etc, to further improve the Startup Ecosystem Canvas, which was last updated in 2016.
In the said gathering, they were able to discuss the challenges experienced by startup founders and identify initiatives that can help startups with their pain points. They were also able to list down the opportunities, programs, and events that can accelerate growth for startups.
The following are the list of opportunities, programs, investors, and media outlet that growth stage startups can look out:

Investor Networking – connecting founders to professional investors
Major Media – mainstream local media press
Funding - Angels / Micro-VCs (Seed stage investors)
Venture Capitalists – Series A and beyond investors
Infrastructure – Office space, HR, insurance
