Empowering founders. Accelerating startups.

What is IdeaSpace?

IdeaSpace is a non-profit organization running founder-focused programs for early-stage tech startup founders solving emerging market issues.

We believe that technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship are critical to the Philippines’ long-term growth and development and that startup founders play a major role in shaping the future of industry, community, and society. Since 2012, we have been helping technology entrepreneurs develop and scale tech- or tech-enabled innovations and transform these into stable, scalable, and sustainable businesses.

We offer an acceleration program, an alumni program, an Opportunity Fund, and an external relations program, ensuring that we give founders the support they need at the critical phases of their businesses.
