Techie Challenge

The Philippine Emerging Startups Open (PESO) is a “pagalingan ng Business Plan” contest. The prize? Investors dyyyyiiing to invest in your super delicious technology-enabled business. From the PESO website:

PESO is a technology and innovation business plan competition modeled after the MIT $50K Entrepreneurship Competition.

PESO will allow you to:

Connect: with people across academia, industry, and government as well as experienced mentors both here and abroad.

Create: teams with the right mix of skills who will be trained to write, refine, and pitch strong business plans to industry experts and venture capitalists.

Catalyze: the building of technology- and innovation- based businesses by providing support from the PESO network even after the competition is over.

Put on your thinking caps and come up with that Google-rrrriffic idea.


If you don’t have that Google-rrrrific idea, maybe you’re meant for a crack at computer system testing.

The Trend Micro Technology Challenge (TMTC) is a nationwide design, implementation and computer-based system testing competition that measures the skills, intelligence and customer-need intuitiveness among Filipino IT students enrolled in our various colleges and universities in the Philippines.

With this year’s theme as Network Protection Against Security Threats, the competition consists of solving different problems that simulate real-life activities and processes in setting up a network infrastructure protected from security threats.

For more information visit the official Tech Challenge website:

The TMTC is open to college/university students in the Philippines.
