There was another informative discussion on technology and innovation in our Vigattin Radio Program. Mr. Earl Valencia, President of Ideaspace Foundation, shared with us his experiences at the recent Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Conference on Innovation and Trade Implementation Practices held in Indonesia. Mrs. Socorro Yap, on the other hand, talked about the upcoming Young Women Entrepreneurs Boot Camp 2013 (YWEB). This was really a jam-packed episode aiming to shed light on the current state of our local technology and startup community.

YWEB 2013
Unleash your entrepreneurial spirit!

The Young Women Entrepreneurs Boot Camp 2013 (YWEB) is a joint project of Samahan ng mga Pilipina para sa Reporma at Kaunlaran (SPARK!) and the U.S. Embassy. This is a fantastic opportunity for women entrepreneurs to share ideas and experiences and be mentored by successful business owners and experts. YWEB aims to empower women by giving them a three-day session (September 23-25) to fine-tune their business models and strategies, know more about the best practices in the industry, and enhance their products or services.

Studies show that countries which have more women entrepreneurs who are active in the industry tend to do better overall, i.e economically, politically, socially. This is perhaps the main reason why SPARK! Philippines encourage more women to drive growth and innovation in the Philippine economy.
