About TECH PLANTER and TECH PLANTER in the Philippines

Through this program, Leave a Nest is aiming to provide more collaborations with deep tech researchers and inventors with our network of local and foreign companies eager to nurture the next generation of technology solutions solving deeply-rooted social issues. The TECH PLANTER deep tech ecosystem has created an almost 3000-strong startup network coming from Japan, Southeast Asian nations (Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia) and other regions like the United Kingdom and we are excited to find more passionate individuals and teams in solving global issues! 

Over the years, Filipino startups under the TECH PLANTER ecosystem were supported to secure in-house investments and local and foreign collaborations through their investment arms, industry partners and vast academic network. Additionally, since its inception, it has awarded more than 2 million Philippine pesos and other in-kind perks brought by the local and global partners from the previous Demo Days. Local and foreign innovation-driven companies and organizations ranging from telecommunication industry to incubators come in as partners and judges to further help forward-thinking entrepreneurs through TP.
