PHILIPPINES RICE BOWL STARTUP AWARDS 2016 NATIONALS AND REGIONAL/GLOBAL FINALS KEYDATES

 

MANILA – The Global Startup Awards joined forces with the Rice Bowl ASEAN Startup awards to host a series of regional events as an exhaustive celebration of start-up achievement for 2016. A SPACE Philippines – the country’s leading coworking + collaboration project – has been selected as the Country and Community Partner for the Philippines National Start-up Awards, and the Regional Finals Partner to be hosted this year in Philippines. Last year the Rice Bowl Awards was hosted to great acclaim in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Founder of A SPACE Philippines, Matteo Morrison shares, “The Philippines’ start-up eco system continues to expand and gain global recognition, and A SPACE is honored to celebrate the good work with our own National Start-up Awards. Giving Filipino start-ups the opportunity to win the National Awards in July, progress to the Regional finals in August – also being held in the Philippines – and then potentially go on to success at the Global Awards in Kuala Lumpur, in November – that’s just one big happy WOW Philippines!”

National Ambassadors such as Mon Ibrahim, Manny Ayala, Benjamin Walch, Nicole Paterno, Diego Ramos, Marilen Tantamco, Lemuel Clark, Ron Baetiong, Allan Tan and Nina Terol have been nominating local start-up companies in the following categories: Start up of the year, Best Disrupter / Game-changer, Founder of the year, Startup Journalist of the year, Best Campaign of the Year, Start up Enabler of the year, Best Newcomer, Best Professional Investor, Developer Hero, Best Social Media Influencer, Best Social Enterprise

The nominations will be vetted and shortlisted at an event to be held on June 15, 2016 at A SPACE Greenbelt. Shortlisted nominations will go through to a final judging round to be held later that same day at A SPACE Greenbelt’s Rockstar Room (asapcemanila.com/aspacegreenbelt). Judges will not be revealed until judging day to prevent lobbying, but will include a cross-section of thinkers from the Philippines’ innovation community.

The Philippines National Awards will take place on July 15th at A SPACE Greenbelt’s Gallery with finalists being recipients of local benefits and the opportunity to represent the Philippines at the ASEAN Final in September (venue to be confirmed). Winners of the ASEAN Final will compete in November at the Global Startup Awards finale, this year in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

ABOUT GLOBAL STARTUP AWARDS:

Starting in the Nordics in 2012, the Global Startup Awards annually selects and awards those within their respective regional tech / web industries that have shown outstanding achievements in business and service to the community.

Working with local national partners in each of our regions, we go on an annual expedition to find those companies and individuals that within the last 5 years have gone on to become a game changer or inspiration to thousands, if not millions or billions of users and fans –  a rarity considering these numbers are something that other industries have taken many decades to achieve.
