Uplifting the Philippine startup ecosystem


Designed to empower early-stage entrepreneurs, Founders Launchpad was recently launched by AHG Lab and Draper Startup House.  Founders Launchpad is a hands-on startup incubator program  aimed at providing a holistic learning journey for promising founders with its weekly curriculum of training sessions, workshops, and mentorship from industry leaders.

The 12-week program offers a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs to live and work in the heart of Sinigang Valley, the startup capital of the Philippines. Founders Launchpad also provides hands-on support from expert teams in tech, management, and marketing to help startups build their MVP and prepare for pitch presentations to investors.

"Our aim with Founders Launchpad is to empower entrepreneurs in the Philippines to bring their ideas to life. We want to create a nurturing environment where founders can connect with the local startup scene, learn from experienced entrepreneurs and industry experts, experience the vibrant atmosphere of Sinigang Valley, and receive the guidance needed to successfully launch their startup," said Thomas Abentung, program lead at Founders Launchpad.

Founders Launchpad is now accepting applications for its first cohort and is looking for early-stage startups that are eager to grow and succeed. Offering startups an investment value of US$50,000 in funding, services, and other benefits, as well as hotel accommodations at Draper Startup House Manila, Founders Launchpad is the perfect opportunity for an early-stage entrepreneur looking to take their business to the next level.

With the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) as its official government partner and QBO Innovation Hub as its co-presenter, Founders Launchpad will have great support to achieve its goal of providing a nurturing space and empowering Filipino founders and entrepreneurs not just in the NCR but the rest of Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao to create a positive impact for their kababayans.
