QBO Innovation Hub is the Philippines’ first public-private partnership platform for startups. It has three objectives: (1) provide startups with access to capital, resources, information and expertise; (2) develop the entrepreneurial talent pool; and (3) create successful startups through customised programs that accelerate growth.
QBO will build on its existing #StartupPinay campaign by profiling strong female startup founders in the Philippines. The campaign will highlight the factors for women’s success, the challenges they face and strategies to address challenges. By doing so, QBO hopes to create the perception that anyone— whether woman or man—can be a successful startup founder.
