The 2016 IDEA Symposium and Workshop are implemented by PhilDev and USAID with the aim of strengthening the science and technology based entrepreneurship ecosystem in the Philippines.
The Symposium explores obstacles and opportunities in developing this ecosystem. It challenges participants to employ disruptive ideas and methods towards innovative solutions. Thought leaders, practitioners and policy makers discuss the issues that are important to them.
The Workshop challenges startup founders, professors and students to stretch their entrepreneurial mindsets.
Entrepreneurs are led by Silicon Valley venture capitalists through various hands-on exercises based on Dado Banatao's own success factors for startups.
Students are introduced to the world of entrepreneurship and are challenged to don an entrepreneurial mindset through various games and social experiments.
Professors are exposed to the startup success factors as well as to a tried and tested pedagogy that they can adapt for their own courses.
