We believe that this platform will help catalyze growth and innovation in the Philippines as well as increase the potential for Philippine startups to scale to other markets,” said Layug.

In addition, Dynamico CEO JR Calanoc firmly believes in the potential of Filipino startups to create impactful solutions that can address local and global challenges.
