Globe Telecom, Kickstart Ventures, Inc., Proudcloud, Dynamic Objx, and MINT College once again bring the much-anticipated Startup Weekend to the Philippines.
Startup Weekend Manila, which is in its second year, will be held on April 27-29 at MINT College in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The Cebu leg will be on May 11-13. Startup Weekend is a 54-hour competition where developers, designers, marketers, technopreneurs, and venture capitalists come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startup businesses.
Startup Weekend Manila 2011 winner HobbyMash – the preformed team of Liezl Buenaventura, Josh Liao, Rafael Oca, and Mark Co – came away with a SGD 15,000 startup fund and enrollment in a 100-day Startup Bootcamp in Singapore, led by SingTel Innov8 (the corporate venture arm of leading telecoms provider SingTel) and Joyful Frog Digital Incubator (JFDI). They presented in Demo Asia 2012, and are working towards the 2012 Demo Day this May.
