The ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ASEAN BAC), in partnership with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), Go Negosyo, and SGV & Co (EY Philippines), will launch the Meet ASEAN’s Talents and Champions (MATCH) Philippines Roadshow this coming July 9-10, 2018 in Metro Manila and Cebu, respectively.

The event will happen on July 9 in Makati City. The second run will be at Radisson Blu Hotel, Cebu City on July 10.

MATCH aims to facilitate deal-making by showcasing ASEAN start-ups and growth enterprises across all sectors, and linking them to top global and local investors. A first of its kind platform, it connects ideas to capital in two ways: (i) a curated deal-making MATCH portal that matches ASEAN enterprises to potential investors, which will enhance their access to quality funding, expertise and networks; and (ii) a MATCH conference under the Singapore Fintech Festival. It will showcase keynote presentations and leadership dialogues by prominent entrepreneurs, founders and investors, and cover topics of interest such as financing strategies and enterprise value creation.

Top ASEAN business leaders including ASEAN BAC Philippines Chairman Joey Concepcion will discuss Digitize ASEAN, which will bring insights from the key players in the digital economy. MAS executives will also share about the innovative startup ecosystem of Singapore while SGV & Co partners will talk about making startups and growth enterprises ready for funding and attractive to investors.

The MATCH Philippines Roadshow is supported by the Philippines Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc., Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc., Mandaue Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc., Cebu Innovation Council, and Cebu IT BPM Organization, and other partners from the startup community including enablers nationwide.

Startup founders and members from the Philippines can learn about MATCH and network with multi-stakeholders in the local startup community.
