Our ON3 events are rolling business plan competitions/networking events and industry discussion all in one. We co-host the events throughout the country with the cooperation of local private and public sponsors and partners. The activities help us with our quest to discover what is brewing across the country in certain areas of technology and importantly provide a venue to accelerate ideas that have a place in the global markets. In this digital age, there are opportunities that abound that did not exist previously. With a mix of the right ingredients (the "right stuff"), companies in the Philippines can secure a nice position in the technosphere.
After a successful launch of the ON3 program in 2011, we are even more enthused about this year’s program, with two more ON3 regional partners and an expansion of ON3 nationals from 12 to 20 companies. The ON3 Pitching Competition will begin on April 10th with technology startups representing the Region of Visayas. ON3 is about discovering, mobilizing, and forming a healthy entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Philippines to foster the development and growth of global companies.
Everything starts with an idea!
Event format will be Silicon Valley style with Philippine flair
Who should take part: Start-ups, Venture Capitalists, Angel investors, Social Media aficionados, students, tech bloggers, industry executives, anyone just plain interested in what is brewing across the country.
