Saving the Philippine startup ecosystem

Saving the Philippine startup ecosystem

In this podcast, James Lette, Executive Director of Manila Angel Investors Network (MAIN)—a partner of Investing in Women (IW) in the Philippines—discusses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Philippines startup ecosystem and women founders, and outlines a blended finance approach to incentivise investors to back these founders.

MAIN and IW have partnered to improve access to early stage capital for women’s SMEs in the Philippines and to support more women to become business angel investors. This investment partnership will play an important role to stimulate economic recovery for long-term resilience in Metro Manila and across the country.
