Tuesday, April 30, 2013
CEBU CITY -- TechTalks.ph and Junior Chamber International (JCI) Mandaue are joining forces to start another Startup Weekend Cebu (SWC) this year, for the third time.
The event is scheduled on June 7, 8, and 9.
Paul Villacorta, of JCI and TechTalks, said the event will give the participants the chance to make their ideas happen. "SWC 3 is a workshop with no talk, all action," he said.
Villacorta said, the Department of Science and Technology's information and communication technology (ICT) and the Cebu Chamber of Commerce are supporting this year's Startup Weekend Cebu.
The workshop welcomes all interested individuals with a business in mind and with “advance technological intellect.” SWC 3 also welcomes students who want to boost their confidence.
Ramil Montealto, another JCI Mandaue and TechTalks member, said the event is open to all interested individuals not only in Cebu but also in different areas in the Philippines and the world.
For those who want to find a partner in business and want to “come out from their shell,” Tina Ampen, TechTalks founder and adviser to SWC 3, advised them to sign up for the event at cebu.startupweekend.org. (Melmae L. Makiputin, Norsu-Intern/Sunnex)
