Innovators urged to join 2nd Startup Davao
Dabawenyos who have innovative ideas that can make life better are encouraged to join the 2nd Startup Weekend slated at Ingenuity, Centron Building, Quirino Avenue in Davao City on August 9 to 11, 2013.
“If you have innovative projects no matter how crazy they are and even if you do not have technical knowledge then you should join the Startup Weekend,” event head organizer Dulce Rose Lada said. People from all walks of life should join the Startup because even if they do not know how to make the web or mobile applications, they can team up with other IT professionals to push for their projects, she added.
Startup Weekend is a movement of entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of discovering startups and launching them into successful ventures.
Lada said the last time they had the Startup, a nurse who was fed up with the system of getting numbers and waiting in line for such number to be called became part of a Startup Project which created an App which sent a message to the person next in line in the queue. So instead of that person lining up to wait for his or her number to be called, we now have the practical App, she added.
She said that subject to the payment of a minimal registration fee, everyone can join the Startup weekend including businessmen, web designers, software developers, product managers and all those interested to make a pitch for their ideas.
“The entrepreneur mentors will share their time and expertise to aspiring entrepreneurs to help their Startups success,” Lada said. The mentors, she added, will act as coaches who will help the teams design and carry out effective experiments, analyze the data they collect and guide them to come up with a solid startup.
Among the mentors of the 2nd Startup Weekend are Christopher John Cubos- founder and CEO of Philippine Global Outsourcing, June Millan- CTO of Ingenuity Technology Consulting,Eliza Magno-President of Illumedia, Tina Amper-World Startup Report Global Organizer, David Overton-Symm.ph founder, Pia Angeli Bernal-Social Enterprise Investment at Kickstart Ventures Manager and Ray Rubio-CubePixels CEO.
