I will be taking some time to review the enclosed materials but I want to share this information received from Ivanna of Briggy Hall for your review too.
I am currently in discussion with at least one individual connected to the venture capital communities of San Francisco and Los Angeles who might have an interest in some Filipino entities. I recommend that you all follow the development of StartUp Weekends in the Philippines [see, for example, http://www.scoop.it/t/yellow-boat-social-entrepreneurism/p/1672518874/startup-weekend-manila-2012-updates-schedules-and-other-info and https://www.facebook.com/swmanila ] for some other entrepreneurial ideas and mentoring connections.
http://manila.startupweekend.org is going on right now .. and StartUp Cebu is soon to follow, too.
Check out the Organizers, Judges and Mentors, found at http://manila.startupweekend.org

Hope this finds you well. I’m floating around this letter just in case you or you would like to know someone who would like to support our cause. I’m doing the fund-raising two ways: crowd-funding and donor-seeking. Please let me know if you would know anyone who would find the cause of helping startup entrepreneurs in the Philippines worthwhile. Hope you could champion us.
