“Our core mission focuses on being the bridge from NYC to the Manila start-up community by providing the tools and resources needed to build successful businesses”
New York City, NY - (PRWEB) September 22, 2016
Today, Fullwave, a Philippines based start-up 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 start-up 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, start-up, and entrepreneur related within the heart and soul of the Philippines tech epicenter.
Fullwave’s initial foray into the Filipino Start-Up 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, Co-Founder 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.
Further expanding Ace Velarde noted, “our strategy is connecting investors, developers, founders, and culture in a way that will allow us to not only fuel the start-up community, but to also give hands-on operational support to bring start-ups to success”
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 start-up culture successful:
- To liberate from traditional structures
- To find opportunity wherever it may present itself
- Pride and conviction in achieving your own path
The event to be held at Mapúa Institute of Technology in Manila, Philippines on October 14-15th will host some of Southeast Asia’s most prominent VC’s, investors, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and developers. For more information visit http://www.fullwave.ph
