From university project to leading IT solutions firm – how two young entrepreneurs are leading the local IT development space 

Co-founded by young entrepreneurs Claire Ongcangco and Miko Cornejo back when they were members of the student council of the Ateneo de Manila University, Concept Machine was created to offer the best web and online experience for clients, allowing them create solutions and to get their message out loud and clear in the digital space.

“We had little to no capital. However, we knew there was a very real demand in the market,” says Miko Cornejo, Concept Machine COO. “Consumer behaviors were changing, and there was an increasing need to digitalize businesses. We’re glad to have been pioneers in this space.”


“We started young, and that is one of our key advantages,” adds Claire Ongcangco, Concept Machine CEO. “We make sure that we keep ourselves up-to-date with the latest trends in technology.” Claire additionally teaches IT Entrepreneurship in the Ateneo de Manila University.
