The Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) has extended until Wednesday, Oct. 13 the deadline for submission of proposals for its Higher Education Institution Readiness for Innovation and Technopreneurship (HeIRIT)-Regional Startup Enablers for Ecosystem Development (ReSEED) Program.


In a Facebook post, the DOST-PCIEERD urged its supported technology business incubators (TBIs) to submit their proposals until Oct. 13 via DOST Project Management Information System (DPMIS).

“Are you a part of PCIEERD-supported Technology Business Incubators who wants to take the lead in establishing a regional startup ecosystem consortium? Submit your proposals now or until October 13, 2021, 5PM for our ReSEED Program!,” read the Innovation Council’s post on Sunday, Oct. 10.

The PCIEERD said HEIRIT ReSEED Program aims to strengthen the startup ecosystem in the regions by providing funding support to PCIEERD-funded TBIs to lead in establishing and formalizing a Regional Startup Ecosystem Consortium.

“This program will support the regional startup ecosystem consortium to establish a regional startup development roadmap, come up with strategies to promote the startup program of the PCIEERD/DOST, establish a pool of mentors to increase fundability of startups in the regions, craft skills enhancement programs for the TBI team and other startup enablers, and more!,” the Council said.
