Taken from the term itself “by means of”, VIA is an avenue to convene various segments of the startup ecosystem meaning to establish relationships, develop connections, and engage in programs to sustain their ventures.
The event aims to provide an approach to instigate intercommunication with key players in the startup and innovation ecosystem for a mutually-beneficial relationship other than providing, but most importantly sustain the country’s startup ecosystem. It is a gathering of Philippine startups and innovators acknowledged for their achievements and efforts to affect social, environmental, economic, and technological change.
The program will feature four different segments that discuss the state of the startup community and how new paradigms are bound to revolutionize this ecosystem. VIA Partnerships will tackle the role of the government, academe, and industry network in the development of the Philippine startup and innovation scene. Meanwhile, VIA Collaboration focuses on augmenting startup entrepreneurship, dive into innovative trailblazers in crosscutting industries, and incorporate talks about the social impact of women at the forefront of technology and startup growth.
Attendees would compose of Impact Hub Manila and KMC’s network, companies that are seeking opportunities and new resources, mentors and executive level management, representatives of related government organizations, and funding organizations.
