World, You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet!

It’s been close to a year now that I wrote this post.

In it, I lamented at how poor the startup support was in our country. I compared our startup scene to that of our neighboring countries and complained.

Then, almost on cue, all the activity started.

The first Startup Weekend was launched and was followed by another in a few months. Major startup incubators sprouted: Ideaspace, Kickstart, and Wireless Wings. Startup meetups were being organized here and there. Social media became the megaphone fledgling startups used to broadcast their stories. Various startup-centric web magazines have been founded, just in the last couple of months.

Almost overnight, the amount of support available to startups and its owners increased exponentially.

There was NONE of this when I started. This is wonderful! We’re still a long way from where we want to be, but it’s a fantastic start. The energy is palpable! I’m SEEING more and more startups being formed as we speak.

After just 10 months, I’ve gone from complaining to commending. Go Pinoy startups!

Look out world, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!

PS: though I STILL think our schools could do a better job supporting potential entrepreneurs
