This will help us find areas where we can engage them as we build a startup ecosystem that supports ICT entrepreneurship and innovation,” stated DigitalPH Program Manager Ms. Emmy Lou V. Delfin, during the Memorandum of Agreement signing between DICT and Impact Hub Manila represented by Undersecretary Monchito B. Ibrahim and Impact Hub Manila Co-Founder & CEO Celesto Eden Rondario last August 28, 2018.
