What we're about

Silicon Beach Manila is a newly established startup community in Manila, Philippines, in partnership with Silicon Beach Melbourne in Australia.

What's it about?
- Gather startup entrepreneurs and investors from various industries
- Connect people
- Provide a safe space for the entrepreneurs to share their ideas
- We believe in nurturing one's idea would help them reach their potential

Our mission is to empower startups through education, industry access and to uphold communal support from like-minded people. We want startup entrepreneurs to promote and expand capabilities throughout the Manila startup community.

Pitch night is one of the main events/features of the community, this event enables anyone to pitch their ideas for 90 seconds and ask what they need...or basically as we call it, Elevator Pitch.

In the future, we will also host free seminars/lectures with successful entrepreneurs as guest speakers.

There are at least 17 strong startup communities in Asia Pacific, and we are the first to build one here in the Philippines.

The community members consists of entrepreneurs, CEO and founders, programmers, technical consultants, investors, employers, job hunters and thought leaders.

Why join the community?

"Being part of this dynamic community allows for an opportunity to immerse in the changing business language of the 21st century, connect with a network of passionate individuals, and be a driving force for change.

Whether you’re an aspiring startup founder, an investor, a corporate, an app developer, or even a student, there’s much to learn about joining a startup community" as said by Tech in Asia.
