Spark Fest is the only annual conference in the Philippines that brings together startup
founders, creative entrepreneurs, and social innovators.
The one-day conference gathers a rare mix of thought leaders and industry movers whose sole mission is to inspire Filipino talent to build, earn, and make the world better with their ideas. Participants not only get to attend special talks and panels but also get a chance to pitch and consult with some of the country’s top entrepreneurs.
The Spark Fest is powered by The Spark Project (TSP), the only Philippine-based
crowdfunding platform for creative and social enterprises.
“In the Philippines, there is a vast resource of talent left untapped. The success behind the Spark Project was that by creating a shared space for talent to build on talent, we were also able to build a community with a shared vision of helping aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs. It’s modern-day bayanihan at its finest,” said Patch Dulay, founder and CEO of the Spark Project.
The Spark Fest 2019 will feature Christian San Jose, co-founder of Make by Saatchi and Saatchi. He helped build the digital brands of Adobe Inc., Kobe Bryant, James Harden, and Usain Bolt. Joining him are amazing entrepreneurs like Sherill Quintana of Oryspa Solutions, Anya Lim of ANTHILL Fabric Gallery, the Instagram famous trio @pereastreet, and The Bloomfields. Returning to the stage are crowd favorites Anna Oposa of Save Philippine Seas, Kirk Damasco of Worship Generation and Get Blued, RJ Ledesma of Mercato Centrale, and TV host and author Bianca Gonzalez-Intal.
“Our challenge for Filipino talent is to reimagine the way they create. Having a highly-curated roster of speakers and mentors is essential. We really want to inspire and teach emerging entrepreneurs by putting them in the same room as people who have done it before and succeeded. So, we’re very intentional in our selection of stories because entrepreneurship, creativity, and social change can be challenging. But that’s how you make the world better. Our goal is to encourage those who are ready to level up,” added Dulay.
Now on its 3rd year, Spark Fest will take place on March 23, 2019 at the Globe Tower in
Bonifacio Global City, Taguig from 8 in the morning to 6 in the afternoon.
