The Palawan International Business Incubator or ITBI is collaborating with the DOST – MIMAROPA and Make a Difference (MAD) Malaysia ti help local startups in developing world class ideas.
Launched at the Palawan State University-Main Campus in Puerto Princesa City, the Palawan ITBI will be operated under the MAD Incubator management framework. These 16 tech-driven startups made a mark as investors bought into their ideas.
The objective of supporting startups is the creation of additional jobs and the introduction of domestic technology into the EAGA and the upcoming Asean Economic Community.
According to DOST-MIMAROPA regional director Josefina Abilay, the Palawan ITBI will allow “ideas to be transformed into products and start-ups can be guided to become full-fledged entrepreneurs.”
