Invest in the Philippines #InvestPH
Startup founders and investors talk about why it’s a good time to invest, and grow a business, in the Philippines. The country is in a demographic sweet spot, with a young, connected, tech-savvy population driving the adoption of mobile and internet products and services. Couple that with six years of economic growth above 6% annually, and increasing FDI, the Philippines is an undervalued gem that just might yield quite positive surprises. Kickstart Ventures and some of their portfolio company founders share their insights on growth in SEA.
