Kickstart Ventures brings you the 69th edition of Raid The Fridge, our monthly #startupPH networking mixer, with fintech Coins.ph founder Ron Hose to talk about building Coins.ph from seed funding to acquisition, setting strong company culture, and competing with incumbent players backed by two of Philippine’s largest conglomerates.
The Coins.ph acquisition by Go-Jek represents one of the first large exits for a startup founded in the Philippines in recent years. Its founder Ron Hose shares their growth lessons– transforming from crypto exchange services to a suite of mobile wallet and payments services that’s unlike the earlier mobile wallets accessed by Filipinos.
Kickstart continues to deliver its signature community mixer RAID THE FRIDGE, a monthly open event that gathers startup founders for opportunities to learn, engage, or collaborate with investors, developers, corporations, the government, and the media. Meet the personalities who generously shared their time and learnings to the #startupPH community.
