TECHtonic 2017: Where Startups, Investors, Tech Afficionados, and Ordinary People Come Together

Bringing together local and international tech entrepreneurs, business leaders, investors, private corporations, and promising startup founders, TECHtonic 2017: Manila Tech Convention is set to take place on July 29-30, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia (MoA), Pasay City from 10:00 A.M.-6:00 P.M..

With the theme, “Culture for the Future”, the event aims to mirror large tech and innovation startup conferences in neighboring countries like Singapore, Malaysia, and HongKong, where several young entrepreneurs are becoming more and more active in putting up startup ventures in diverse fields of technology. Tech subfields like “fintech” (financial technology), and “edutech” (education technology) have been floating buzz words over the years in the tech startup scene. A good number of entrepreneurs are solving many of world’s current problems through these breakthrough technologies.

Access to capital and resources needed to accelerate business growth have always been abundant, but there are not enough avenues in which founders, investors, and related groups can connect and network. Positioned to be the Philippines’ largest event targeting the country’s startup scene, TECHtonic provides just that – an event that not only highlights new technologies and innovative products, but also allows for interactions that facilitate the flow of business deals. The word “TECHtonic” came from two words, the first is technology and the second is tectonic which refers to a type of eathquake (tectonic earthquake), which this event is expected to shake the tech startup scene in the Philippines.

Startup entrepreneurs shall be given a chance to battle it out with other startups in a pitching competition called “Startup Arena” where they get to pitch their pioneering business ideas to a prudently nominated panel of investors. Startups who will emerge victorious shall be given equity-free prize money and the opportunity to be mentored by seasoned tech entrepreneurs as they work to grow their business. For those who are interested to join the Startup Arena, go here: http://www.techtonic.ph/startup-arena.html.

The guests shall also have after-event city tours and pub crawls, organized by Philippine startups Tripkada and SunnyTrip.ph. The confirmed sponsors and exhibitors are: Promate, Eastern Communications, House of Manila, Belmont & Winford Hotels, Telnovo, DMAIPH, Aquabest, Fly Ace Corporation, Allocacoc, Mediacast, Citi, Argon Animation Inc., Mega Cellular Network, Vuewin, Transportify, eGrub.net, Evapolar, Loudbasstard, Centrex, YouthHack, Conference.PH, Dotweblabs, U2TV Medic, HERTZ, Snippet Media and powered by PLDT Home with Hotel Partners: Belmont, Winford, Hotel 101, Microtel, Privato and Heroes Hotel.
