TECH PLANTER in the Philippines 2023 is now OPEN for applications!
TECH PLANTER is a program that accelerates the development and realization of deep technologies to solve issues in society. This program focuses on deep tech, and does not necessarily discriminate on the stage of your technology and whether you are incorporated or not, which sets us apart from other programs and competitions. This program has been running in Japan since 2014, and it will be our seventh year to implement it in the Philippines this 2023.
Deadline of application is on March 10, 2023. Nine (9) finalists and six (6) lightning talk teams will be selected for the Demo Day on May 13, 2023 (Saturday) in Metro Manila. Company awards will be given during the Demo Day. The Grand Winner and Leave a Nest Awardee for the Philippine Demo Day will compete again in the TECH PLANTER Asia Final 2023 in Malaysia on August 26, 2023!
For all those who are interested and think their technology is impactful and can be used to solve issues in the Philippines and abroad, this is your chance to show potential supporters, both from the Philippines and Japan, of your idea! You can apply via the link below: https://global.lne.st/tpasean2023app
Please note that you need to have a Leave a Nest ID before you can apply, so make sure you sign up first!
In case you want to know more about the program before applying, you can join our online Information Sessions in February. Also, there will be physical information sessions with the possibility of live streaming in universities within Metro Manila. Details about our information sessions will be posted soon.
Sow the seeds of deep innovation for local issues and be the change for Philippine society!
