It's back! The first Raid The Fridge happens next week, January 28th (THU), and we're re-stocking our fridge with beers and re-opening our doors to the #startupPH community at Area 55.

And helping us kick-off Raid The Fridge is Jean-Patrick Bisson, CEO and Co-Founder of LoanSolutions, a fintech startup that joined the Kickstart investment portfolio in 2015.

We're pretty sure you've seen countless articles listing FinTech (especially for emerging markets) on someone's "must-watch" list for 2016. Guess what? JP has been hacking fintech with LoanSolutions since 2014 and in this session, JP will share more his experience: what he's done, what he's learned, and what more can be done under fintech.

JP is an experienced entrepreneur and savvy online marketer, and a familiar face at several Startup Weekend Cebu runs (having served as one of the judges). Hey, maybe you can also ask him why set-up a startup in Cebu City (and not in Manila)?

So come mingle with us, swap stories with JP, and make new friends over beers! And before you hit the "Register" button, please read the Raid The Fridge House Rules below.

The Kickstart Team

Jean-Patrick Bisson has entrepreneurship in his blood—starting out with lemonade stands at an early age in Canada before moving on to starting a landscaping company with friends in high school and selling items from China through the classified ads. The internet proved to be a turning point, with the inception of Clicklabs, which he founded with Jon Kennedy and Diana Quartin. The business led them to Cebu, and in 2014, founded LoanSolutions.
