Basic Information

The Philippine Development Foundation (PhilDev) is a non-profit organization that aims to eradicate poverty in the Philippines. We believe that we can achieve this by focusing on technology-based education, innovation and entrepreneurship.  We partner with government, academe, development agencies and the private sector to build strategies that address specific gaps in the ecosystem.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has partnered with PhilDev to implement the Innovation for Social Impact Fund (SIF)  that runs for 36 months, January 2018-December 2020. The  goal is to accelerate the formation of technology-based social enterprises (SEs) that address multi-sectoral needs and that are scalable and globally competitive, while answering domestic and regional needs.

The SIF team is comprised of a dynamic group of impassioned professionals from various backgrounds. We believe in a highly collaborative working environment that is results driven and people-focused.
