Kickstart Ventures have funded 10 #startups within 9 months in the #Philippines

Kickstart Ventures have funded 10 #startups within 9 months in the #Philippines

Fast forward and nine months later, we’ve achieved our goal – ten funded Startups from different locations in the Philippines. Further, we learned that we need strong partners to model collaboration and help build the right environment for the startups to thrive and succeed. Hence, we founded, together with local startup-stalwart Jay Fajardo, the LaunchGarage program – a six-month, hands-on acceleration program led by Jay. Its mission: take ideas in their early-stage, develop product, and launch them fast into the market to validate their ideas. Once accepted into the program the founders will receive US$30,000 for 15 percent in equity. And they take part in all the training modules, workshops and events meant for Kickstart’s portfolio companies.
