What is PHSW?

Philippine Startup Week is the country's premier 5-day conference that brings together startup founders, investors, corporates, the academe, media, and government in one virtual stage to foster collaboration and innovation.

Through pitching competitions, learning sessions, expo booths, main summits, investor programs, and various community events under five unique tracks (Discover, Develop, Collaborate, Invest, and Showcase), the Philippine Startup Week provides a platform for innovators to celebrate the Filipino startup community and the key players contributing to the growing Philippine startup ecosystem, push the boundaries of technology, and explore synergies and connect with relevant stakeholders from across the country and beyond! 

During its third iteration, Philippine Startup Week 2021 will feature various main summits and community events organized by accelerators, tech companies, schools, investors, government agencies, and other organizations from across the country, covering a diverse range of topics and sectors and promoting organizations and initiatives across the growing Philippine startup ecosystem.

This large-scale collaborative initiative is organized by DOST, DTI, and DICT, alongside QBO Innovation Hub and other private agencies.
