Building a network and making connections are essential for businesses to grow, even more so for startup companies. To get a head start in the cutthroat startup industry, QBO Innovation Hub–the Philippines’ first public-private sector platform for startup companies–launched the QBO app.
The app offers a new and convenient way for QBO’s community to connect with each other and with its roster of experienced mentors. It also grants the user access to the company’s many enriching programs and services. Think your regular social media app but tailor-made for those looking to connect and network within the industry.
Serving as a virtual hub even, it allows startups from all over the Philippines to connect with a broader range of entrepreneurs, investors, partners, and other potential resource persons. It’s also an avenue for users to engage in startup-related discussions as well as stay updated with QBO’s events and services.
The QBO App features three primary functions. Its QNNECT feature provides access to QBO’s network and connects users with people with whom they can create meaningful partnerships. The QLLABORATE feature enables a more active startup community through the QBO App. While with QNTRIBUTE, users can become active members of the startup ecosystem, sharing their news, pushing their own products, and posting photos, links, videos and other startup-related content on a social media-like timeline, as well as give feedback to QBO’s programs and services.
QBO is backed by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) along with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), J.P. Morgan, and IdeaSpace Foundation Inc.
The QBO App is only the latest development in QBO’s vision of Filipino startups changing the world, and it is available and ready for use on both iOS and Android devices. For more information about QBO, visit www.qbo.com.ph.
