Philippine Startup Week 2022 (PHSW22), with the theme, "Homegrown Heroes: Cultivating Future Tech Giants", is the country’s large-scale collaborative initiative that brings together the local startup community during the 5-day nationwide conference happening on November 14-18, 2022. Made possible through the partnership between the Department of Science and Technology, Department of Trade & Industry, Department of Information and Communications Technology, and QBO Innovation Hub.
In recent years, the Philippine startup landscape has seen growth in terms of participation, customer acquisition, and funding. The rise of our growing ecosystem has given hope to a lot of individuals, communities, and industries that homegrown successes can still be built and scaled further in the years to come.
Now that more investors are looking to the Philippines, how can we improve the ecosystem to create more success? What kind of long-term investments do we need to make to ensure that what we're experiencing now is not just a flash in the pan? These are just a few of the burning questions PHSW22 seeks to tackle throughout the 5-day conference.
