DOST launches ICT business start-up hub in Palawan


The Department of Science and Technology-Mimaropa (DOST-Mimaropa), Palawan State University (PSU), Palaweño ICT Association (PICTA) and Make a Difference (MAD) Industries of Malaysia opened the first international Information and Communications Technology (ICT) business incubator in the region recently at the Palawan State University-Main Campus in Puerto Princesa City. The Palawan International (ICT) Business Incubator cum Start-up Hub or Palawan ITBI will serve as a center for local technopreneurs to develop their tech-relevant ideas into world-class products. DOST-Mimaropa Regional Director Dr. Josefina Abilay said the hub is where “ideas can be transformed into products and start-ups can be guided to become fully-fledged entrepreneurs.” Palawan ITBI is a step closer to the goals of DOST, PSU and PICTA to nurture technopreneurship, promote public-private partnership, create more jobs and introduce local technology ventures into the Asean Economic Community as well as the East Asean Growth Area, whichgroups Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.
