Kickstart Investment/Workspace

55 Paseo de Roxas, Urdaneta Village, Makati City


What is entrepreneurship in the "sharing economy?"

If you're keen to learn more, join us on March 30th and listen to Ted Lad, Ph.D., a Professor and Entrepreneur: he will talk about the economics, strategy, and technology of the sharing economy and its long-term impact on micro-economic and social systems.

Also, we have another cool reason for you to join us this month: we're turning five!

Yep, from an MVP (this was Startup Weekend Manila in October 2011) to a pitch deck presented to the Globe board, we were incorporated in March 2012. Today, Kickstart Ventures is a team of eight, manages two investments funds, and has 31 companies in our investment portfolio.

So come over and help us empty our fridge --- we're thrilled to celebrate this milestone, and it would be awesome to celebrate it with you!

See you,
The Kickstart Team
