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.
We take our role as a startup community builder seriously, the same way when we invest time, talent, and resources for our portfolio companies. So we created three industry-impacting brands that promotes the Philippine startup scene to a global audience – – use them today!
