All about May in Cebu
It’s been one heck of a May but it’s nothing we can’t handle! From events + episodes from the [space] to the sea, we got everyone covered over in this part of the island!
VALUE IN STORYTELLING
May 4, Storytelling Through Design
From the looks of it, everyone took home plenty of compelling insights on creating value in your design from Sam Chan + Micael Diaz de Rivera. Expected nothing less from local community of web designers who pitched in their own stories and learnings into the discussion.
More snaps from the event here.
May 5, Founders Friday
Last month’s source of inspiration was Eddie Ybanez, the brain-child behind the Cebu-based startup, Micab. Eddie highlighted the importance of persistence, openness to change and creating value to your business.
Founders, aspiring entrepreneurs and students alike surely got a good take-away from it.
May 18, PechaKucha Night Cebu
From stories on travelling, to coming out, to the local street art scene, Volume 17 of PechaKucha Night Cebu had a quirky mix of interesting personalities with such exciting stories up their sleeves.
Twin brothers presented together was one of the highlights of the night –definitely a first in PechaKucha Cebu.
Kudos to our awesome presenters and all the equally awesome folks who came and took part. The next one is on the works, get excited!

WORK HARD + PLAY HARDER
May 20, Summer Sailing
We take working + chilling literally in this part of the island. Nothing says summer more than spending it at the ocean! Our Cebu Tribe and spacers spent a day sailing, singing and swimming.
WOMEN TAKE THE STAGE
May 25, Startup Grind Cebu
Startup Grind celebrated incredible women founders around the globe. We had Toni Despojo and Michelle Varron take the stage and share their stories as women founders in their industry, how they knocked down expectations and hustled to reach their success.
We’re most likely going to see more of these two soon as they continue to rock and make waves in the beer and bitcoin industry. Salute to these exceptional women!
May 31, HackerNest Tech Socials feat. Women in Tech
With the help of our local group of Women in Tech we got to know more the awesome women thriving in the tech community through our quarterly tech socials. There was plenty of ideas shared and enough good craft beer to keep the conversations going.
Unexpectedly, we got an interesting mix of techies making it an even better way to cap the month off.
