Kickstart Ventures: A Pitch for Innovation

Kickstart Ventures was a pitch for innovation to the Globe Board: Kickstart will be a corporate hack that will accelerate collaboration between corporations and startups. In 28 March 2012, Kickstart was launched with three co-founders: Minette Navarrete, Dan Siazon, and Christian Besler. Fast forward to today, Kickstart president Minette sums up the journey of the last four years comprised of 25 digital tech startups with 59 founders in its investment portfolio:
“You know when you go to a carnival, and you sign-up for the roller coaster ride — that’s going to be a series of ups and downs. But somewhere in there, you’re gonna think, ‘why, why did I get on this ride?’ And sometimes, you’re going to be in some places on track where you think it’s exhilarating and exciting, and you’re absolutely freakishly happy to be there. Well, that’s kinda what we all signed up for – the highs and the lows, for the moments where we are in abject terror because we have no control nor idea about what’s going to happen next.” #startupPH #kickstartPH
