Aim-dado banatao Incubator launches to spur startups in ph
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.
