DOST-ICT Office Launches the Second Philippine Startup Challenge 2015


The Department of Science and Technology-Information and Communications Technology (DOST-ICT) Office partnered with Philippine Software Industry Association, Ideaspace, Huwaei, and Vibal Foundation launched the 2015 Philippine Startup Challenge (PSC).

Are you a student or a group of students that have this software or internet-based revolutionary start up idea that you think can improve and help a lot of people make their daily tasks and lives a little bit easier? If the answer is yes, then you are of those talented students DOST-ICT is looking for to join this year's Philippine Startup Challenge (PSC).

What is the Philippine Startup Challenge?

PSC is on its second year, it's an annual competition among students from all over the country that aims to promote technology entrepreneurship or ITpreneurship. DOST said "It dares the students all over the country to create bolder, more creative software and internet-based innovations that solve real problems and help improve the lives of individuals worldwide."

How to join? 

To join the competition, each team must have four members composed of one faculty adviser and three students. The faculty adviser must have attended or will attend at least one of the preparatory boot camps for PSC. These are the Lean Startup 101 Boot Camp in 2014 and the boot camps for 2015 scheduled on the following dates: June 6 in Cebu City, June 13 in Davao City, June 20 in Iloilo City, July 4 in Baguio City, July 8 in Metro Manila, and July 25 in Cagayan de Oro City.

Once you have your team with a faculty adviser as your fourth member who has attended or will attend the boot camp and you are ready to submit your entry, you guys are required to send a 5-minute video clip pitching or presenting startup idea, like what it's called, how it works and how it should impact the community when launched online stuff like those etc. The submission has to be made before the end of August 2015.

From all of the submitted entries, ten will be selected that will advance for further mentoring and then will proceed to the National Finals which will then give them opportunity to present or pitch their idea to funders, industry experts and government representatives. The final is currently set to be held in November of this year.
