Fullwave Announces the Fullwave Tech & Startups 2016 Expo 


Millennial Entrepreneurs Bridge the Start­Up Divide Between New York and Manila

Fullwave, a Philippine based start­up focusing on  novel initiatives towards cultivating  entrepreneurial action, formally announced their Fullwave Tech &  Startups Expo at the Mapúa  Institute of Technology.

After working in Manila’s local tech community, the team became aware of the necessity of reinvigorating the local start­up community by providing aspiring  entrepreneurs an unprecedented networking and developmental experience that strays from the standard  convention.


They surmised that the most effective way of addressing this deficiency was by throwing a celebration of everything tech, development, start­up, and entrepreneur related within the heart and soul of  the Philippines tech epicenter. Fullwave’s initial foray into the Filipino Start­Up Community is a combination of a New Yorker’s “work hard,  play hard” attitude towards business,and the youthful abundance and resolution that comes from a talented  aggregate of young millennials ready to engage international audiences. Following the successes of  Jonathon Francis,Co­Founder of Elite Daily, the second most popular millennial website in the US that was acquired in 2015, and Ace Velarde, the founder of the STW Family of Companies, both agreed that the Philippines had something unique and compelling that resonated with their  personal beliefs.

“Our core mission focuses on being the bridge from NYC to Manila ­­adding the hustle and  business savvy of  New York to the aspiring and rapidly growing start­up community and  providing the tools and resources  needed to build successful businesses” commented  Jonathon Francis on weaving the fabric of the Fullwave  expo. “Our strategy is connecting investors, developers, founders, and  culture in a way that will allow us to not only fuel the start­up community, but to also give hands­on  operational support to bring start­ups to success”   Further emphasize by Ace Velarde.

Fullwave’s event at Mapúa will center on following these core tenets that should resound within aspiring  entrepreneurs worldwide:

  • Anyone, regardless of social standing, can make start­up culture successful
  • To liberate from traditional structures
  • To find opportunity wherever it may present itself
  • Pride and conviction in achieving your own path

Some of the highlights of the event are the Hackathon and Startup Conference with Panel discussion on How to build a company from an idea to inception, Lean Startup Mentality, Policy Making,  Disruptive Technologies, The Rise of Intelligent Things, Internet of Things for Education, Women in Tech and a lot more.

The event will be on October 14­ – 15  to be held at Mapúa Institute of  Technology in Manila and will host  some of Southeast Asia’s most prominent VC’s, investors, entrepreneurs, start­ups, and  developers.   This is open to all college students and professionals.

Fullwave Tech and Startups is in partnership with Mapua Institute of Technology, Department of Trade and Industry, Golden Gate Ventures,  STW, Original Pitch, Incubix Technologies, Launchgarage, Mega Merc, Redwizard Events Management and WheninManaila.com as Media Partner.
