Davao Startup Week promotes sustainability through innovation

THE INNOVATION and Development Accelerators Consortium for Startups in Davao Region (IDEAS Davao) launches the second run of the grand startup event in Davao City on Sept. 13-17, 2023, emphasizing the role of innovation and digital transformation for inclusion and sustainability. 

The project is mainly funded by the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD). 

The five-day event is anchored on the theme, “Empowering communities, nurturing inclusive and sustainable digital transformation”, emphasizing the role of startups, entrepreneurs, and technology in achieving and ensuring a sustainable future”. 

Richard Day, Upgrade Innolab Inc. president and event organizer, said the startup ecosystem in the Davao Region continues to grow as new players joined partners and sponsors from the previous Startup Week celebration.

“There are still a lot of things to work on for the startup community in the Davao Region and with new players coming in and offering their help, we are optimistic that startups here will thrive and hopefully bring progress in the region,“ he said.

Last year, IDEAS Davao held 32 events and engaged more than 1,000 startups and enterprises in the Davao Region through various regional activities that helped them network and find funding opportunities.

Several upcoming activities and venues were organized by various community: two-day summit of the 2nd Mindanao Technology Business Incubator held at Sotogrande Hotel, Davao Riverfront Corporate City on September 13 to 14, Provincial Startup Ecosystem Mapping Validation in Tagum City, Mati City, and Digos City on September 14, Techstars Startup Weekend: Social Innovation on Davao held at  Poplar Homes Philippines on September 15, Technology Transfer Forum and Davao Innovation Night held at Sotogrande Hotel on September 15, Startup Community Conference on September 16, and Davao Startup Community Champion Awards held at Sotogrande Hotel on September 17. 

IDEAS Davao is a project established in 202 under the Regional Startup Enablers for Ecosystem Development (ReSEED) Program, an initiative of the DOST-PCIEERD that aims to strengthen the startup ecosystem in the regions by establishing and formalizing a Regional Startup Ecosystem Consortium.
