By Lorenzo Kyle Subido and Sam Navalta |

 

Launched only last month, startup enabler QBO Innovation Hub aims to boost the Philippine startup ecosystem with the goal of finding local enterprises with the potential to be global players. It wants to find and help Philippine startups grow into tech giants such as Uber, Facebook or even Google.

 

Born out of a partnership between the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), JPMorgan Chase & Co. Foundation and PLDT’s IdeaSpace Foundation, QBO offers various services targeted to both full-fledged startup teams and individuals.

 

Its services include a co-working space at the DTI International Building in Makati, a series of classes and workshops appealing to both startup newbies and veterans, and an intensive incubation program for a select number of QBO’s member startups.

 

“Our vision is to have Filipino startups that are changing the world, defining categories and competing,” said Katrina Chan, director of QBO.
