STARTUP STEP-UP

Aim-dado banatao In­cu­ba­tor launches to spur star­tups in ph

HWM (Philippines) - - Bullet In -

the Asian In­sti­tute of man­age­ment (AIM) has joined forces with Filipino It pioneer Dios­dado “Dado” banatao, the chair­man of the phildev, to ac­cel­er­ate startup de­vel­op­ment and en­trepreneur­ship in the philip­pines through an in­cu­ba­tor pro­gram. AIM, in part­ner­ship with phildev, re­ceived a php 14.8-mil­lion grant in ini­tial fund­ing for the Aim-dado banatao In­cu­ba­tor un­der the Depart­ment of Sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy (DOST) In­cu­ba­tion Creation pro­gram.

“We be­lieve that Aim’s be­ing lo­cated in the philip­pines is not an ac­ci­dent. At AIM, our motto is ‘Lead. In­spire. trans­form.’ and the work­ing out of that vi­sion be­gins here, in the philip­pines. One of the fastest ways we can achieve this is to give the coun­try’s big­gest eco­nomic en­gine the rare op­por­tu­nity to ben­e­fit from the men­tor­ship of global vi­sion­ar­ies, such as Dado Banatao,” Jikyeong Kang, AIM pres­i­dent and Dean said. Through the AIM-DADO Banatao In­cu­ba­tor Pro­gram, qual­i­fied star­tups will get rent-free work­ing space, and have an ac­cess to AIM’S men­tor­ing pro­gram and ex­per­tise of its alumni and fac­ulty, in­clud­ing in­di­vid­u­als who have a suc­cess­ful track record in Sil­i­con Val­ley. Ben­e­fi­cia­ries will also have an ac­cess to the global fund­ing net­work of Banatao, Phildev, and AIM. Read more at www.aim.edu.
