Last­ September 1, announced in New York City, Fullwave, a Philippines based start­up focusing on novel initiatives towards cultivating entrepreneurial action, formally announced their Fullwave Tech &  Startups Expo at the Mapúa Institute of Technology. After working in Manila's local tech community, the team became aware of the necessity of reinvigorating the local start­up community by providing aspiring entrepreneurs an unprecedented networking and developmental experience that strays from the standard  convention.

They surmised that the most effective way of addressing this deficiency was by throwing a celebration of everything tech, development, start­up, and entrepreneur related within the heart and soul of the Philippines tech epicenter. Fullwave’s initial foray into the Filipino Start­Up Community is a combination of a New Yorker’s “work hard,  play hard” attitude towards business, and the youthful abundance and resolution that comes from a talented aggregate of young millennials ready to engage international audiences. Following the successes of Jonathon Francis, Co­Founder of Elite Daily, the second most popular millennial website in the US that was  acquired in 2015, and Ace Velarde, the founder of the STW Family of Companies, both agreed that the Philippines had something unique and compelling that resonated with their personal beliefs.    

“Our core mission focuses on being the bridge from NYC to Manila­­adding the hustle and business savvy of  New York to the aspiring and rapidly growing start­up community and providing the tools and resources  needed to build successful businesses” commented Jonathon Francis on weaving the fabric of the Fullwave  expo. Further expanding Ace Velarde noted, “our strategy is connecting investors, developers, founders, and  culture in a way that will allow us to not only fuel the start­up community, but to also give hands­on  operational support to bring start­ups to success”

Fullwave’s event at Mapúa will center on following these core tenets that should resound within aspiring  entrepreneurs worldwide:    
  • Anyone, regardless of social standing, can make start­up culture successful  
  • To liberate from traditional structures  
  • To find opportunity wherever it may present itself  
  • Pride and conviction in achieving your own path    

The event will be on October 14­ & 15 and to be held at Mapúa Institute of  Technology in Manila and will host  some of Southeast Asia’s most prominent VC’s, investors, entrepreneurs, start­ups, and  developers.
