The first-ever international information and communication technology business incubator in the Mindoro-Marinduque-Romblon-Palawan region was opened at the Palawan State University-Main Campus in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan to provide Filipino technology entrepreneurs in Palawan a hub to incubate and accelerate ICT business enterprises.
The ICT business incubator was launched by the Department of Science and Technology-Mimaropa Palawan State University, Palaweño ICT Association, and Make a Difference Industries of Malaysia.
The Palawan International Information and Communications Technology Business Incubator cum Start-up Hub, also known as Palawan ITBI, caters to the growing number of technology-based start-ups.
The TBI provides start-ups a platform where they can develop their tech-relevant ideas into products that will be able to compete in the global market.
Josefina Abilay, DOST-Mimaropa regional director, said the newly launched start-up hub is where “ideas can be transformed into products and start-ups can be guided to become fully-fledged entrepreneurs.”
“It is timely that this initiative is finally offering incubation services to young professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs so that their ideas or start-up products will be accelerated through the Palawan TBI,” she added.
