In a time of industrial innovation, development, and growth; the Philippines is doing its best to keep up (and is succeeding at it). We are seeing a revival in the world of infrastructure, a rebirth in the job market, and a great influx of new businesses coming in to maximize on our valuable resources. With this continuous growth, it is easy to envision the Philippines as a real game changer on an international scale.
This is exactly what the Techtonic Summit pictures as it brings together the country’s best and brightest companies and innovators. On its second year, Techtonic aims to unite startups, corporations, investors, and people from a variety of fields such as the academe, media, and government in the hopes of generating innovative ideas.
This 2018, with the theme “Disrupting Southeast Asia,” the organizers of the event hope to keep up last year’s momentum and give startups and companies the opportunity to share ideas and expand their horizons in a global perspective.
Through the highly anticipated Ring of Fire competition, 20 of the country’s best startups are set to pitch ground-breaking, original ideas to a set of incredible panelists from various fields. These 20 were chosen by the organizers of the event after a long and rigorous evaluation process. But because of their truly innovative ideas and their desire to expand even beyond the Philippines, they stood out among the rest and are already considered winners. However, at the Ring of Fire, only one startup will be deemed the grand winner and receive a prize of $10,000!
Attendees of Techtonic can come to witness exciting debates, engaging speakers, and the discussion of relevant topics, as well as the pitches of these truly incredible startups. Through the booths, interaction, and exposure (oh, and did we mention the free entrance?!), you can just tell that techies and non-techies will have quite a unique experience at Techtonic Summit!
