Bringing together local and international tech entrepreneurs, business leaders, investors, and private corporations, TECHtonic 2017: Manila Tech Convention is set to take place on July 29-30, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia, Pasay City from 10:00am – 6:00pm.
With the theme, “Culture for the Future”, the event aims to mirror large tech and innovation startup conferences in neighboring countries like Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong, where several young entrepreneurs are becoming more and more active in putting up startup ventures in the many different fields of technology. Tech subfields like “fintech” (finance technology), “health tech” (health technology), “adtech” (advertising technology), and “edutech” (education technology) have been floating buzz words over the recent years in this space. A good number of entrepreneurs are solving many of the world’s current problems through these breakthrough technologies.
Access to capital and resources needed to accelerate business growth have always been abundant, but there are not enough avenues through which founders, investors, and related groups can connect and network. Positioned to be the Philippines’ largest event targeting the country’s emerging startup scene, TECHtonic provides just that – an event that not only highlights new technologies and innovative products, but also allows for interactions that facilitate the flow of business deals.
Startup entrepreneurs shall be given a chance to battle it out with other startups in a pitching competition called “Startup Arena” where they get to pitch their pioneering business ideas to a prudently nominated panel of investors. Startups who will emerge victorious shall be given equity-free prize money and the opportunity to be mentored by seasoned tech entrepreneurs as they work to grow their business.
In real Pinoy fashion, guests shall have after-event city tours and pub crawls, organized by Philippine startups TripKada and SunnyTrip.ph.
