Here’s an interesting thing I realized when I was thinking of the previous post :
From my stint in Chikka, I know around 7 people who have developed (or are developing) startups upon leaving the firm.
In my own startup, STORM, a company of around 12-15 people at any given time, 2 people who’ve left the firm have formed their own startups (hello Kiko Loseo and Ope Linchangco!).
Knowing how sparse Filipino startups are, this is no coincidence: working for a startup prepares you to run one.
