Connecting start-ups through media

One vital aspect of running start-ups is getting people to know about your product. Of course, with such choices as print, broadcast, online, and social media, start-up founders have a broad choice on how to get their products (and stories, of course!) to their clients, and to a wider audience.

What ex-journalist and start-up founder Paolo Joseph Lising created, however, is something more unique: a social media platform definitely aimed at entrepreneurs and start-ups. After all, “entrepreneurs need their own platform for sharing their content,” as Paolo himself recounted to OpinYon.

His creation, Million Dollar Concepts (MillionDC.com) has…

Let’s face it: electronics and robotics are no longer becoming exclusive to a privileged, trained few.

Nowadays, electronics are not only being taught at universities and colleges, but also in elementary and secondary schools. And the Philippines has seen its share of kids who had proved themselves equal in the field of electronics and robotics, both here and abroad.

Product rewards for loyal customers are just one of the incentives establishments offer to attract buyers. Loyalty cards, discount coupons, anything that, in theory, would make life a little easier for their costumers – who couldn’t resist that?

However, there’s one drawback in providing rewards: most of the time, rewards holders don’t even know how to utilize their rewards, or miss out deals after forgetting to bring their reward cards, or simply fail to use their rewards.

The business processing outsourcing (BPO) industry is currently one of the Philippines’ most lucrative and most promising business sectors. Yet several factors still affect the growth of the Philippines’ BPO sector, foremost among them the lack of infrastructure and slow Internet connectivity.

However, for IT experts Mark Anthony Lapuz and Vince Loremia, the whole current BPO system in the country is inefficient. The primary reason: foreign companies currently operating in the Philippines are based on large, long-term contracts with huge brick-and-mortar companies.
