QBO celebrates 4 years, P167 million in funding assistance for start-ups

August marks the fourth anniversary since QBO Innovation Hub first opened its doors in 2016. As the country’s first public-private initiative created through a partnership between IdeaSpace, J.P. Morgan, Department of Science and Technology, and the Department of Trade and Industry, QBO has significantly contributed to the growth of the Philippine start-up ecosystem by serving as a platform for the startup community to collaborate, develop talent, and grow. Although a lot has changed, one thing remains true: QBO remains fiercely committed to their mission of creating a globally competitive startup ecosystem in the Philippines through championing innovation.
