Globe Labs would like to invite you to attend Startup Weekend Manila, a unique 54-hour event where developers, designers, technopreneurs, and venture capitalists come together to turn ideas into startup businesses. Startup Weekend Manila will be held from 6PM Friday, Oct 21- to 9PM Sunday Oct 23 at the Mint College, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City .
Aside from the building contacts with like-minded people (and hopefully making a few friends), at the end of the Startup Weekend, participants will present their ideas to a panel of industry experts who will then choose the best idea to fully incubate. The top startup will be given SGD 15,000 of seed funding to stay in Singapore for 100 days for some serious training and mentoring along with other winners from Singapore, Australia, India, Indonesia and Thailand. At the end, groups will have a chance to pitch directly to venture capitalists from around the world through the TechStars / Joyful Frog Digital Incubator Network.
Interested participants can register via http://manila.startupweekend.org until October 20, 2011. To know more about Startup Weekend Manila, visit http://www.manila.startupweekend.org. Registration is PHP 1,000.00, but we highly encourage previous participants of Globe Labs programs to contact us directly if they’re interested in joining this event.
