Startup Weekend Bohol Tourism hopes to be one of the many initiatives by local volunteers and the Bohol ICT Council.
It is a 54-hour event where participants get to enjoy and experience how to build a business or a project in just three days.
The organizers have held a couple of pre-activities before the big Startup Weekend Bohol Tourism event this coming September 29 to help introduce the idea and get them to experience a little bit of what the activity is all about – creating innovations and working on them.
Mentors and a couple of participants underwent a fire pitching game where they got to create ideas out of some random words. They got subjected to a barrage of questions to test if their ideas could stand on its own.
The event is in partnership with the Department of Tourism, Provincial Government of Bohol, and the Bohol Investment Promotion Center. It is sponsored by Uniform Solutions, PrintBit, Gwion, Sea Drake Island Cruises, and Just Sizzlin’ (we are still open for sponsorships!). The participants at the event will also be mentored by Michael de Vincent Edwards, Jerome Auza, Aimee Lim, Nelson Buena and Gina Kapirig. With them are judges Mark Phillips, Vicky Wallace, and many more startup ecosystem supporters.
Startup Weekend Bohol Tourism Edition will be on September 29-October 1, 2017 at the Bohol Bee Farm Panglao. If you’d like to register and stay updated, text Zion at 09084213938 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/StartupWeekendBohol/
