IdeaSpace, the accelerator and incubator program of the MVP group of companies, is currently on a nationwide caravan to encourage Filipinos from all walks of life to start coming up with big, innovative business ideas. They’ve been to different schools, universities, and conferences in the last few weeks and they have several more venues lined up until August. The next bootcamp is scheduled for June 2 at the Ateneo De Manila University.
We caught up with two of the founding members of IdeaSpace, Marthyn Cuan and Earl Valencia, and asked them to give us a quick update. Here’s a short video interview with the two executives:
Based on our discussions with them it looks like they want to position IdeaSpace as a multi-industry and multi-sectoral mentorship and accelerator program. What this means is that it’s not really limited to technology per se. As long as you have a good idea for a product that will solve a pain point, regardless of industry, you have a shot at getting in the program.
Looking forward to seeing the complete details for the application process soon!
