The Elevate National Roadshow will have its stopover North in Clark, Pampanga at the very heart of Central Luzon.

The Department of Trade and Industry in 2015 identified Central Luzon as the top 3 region in the country with the most number of MSMEs in operation. More than 100,000 businesses were in the region and it accounts for more than 11% of MSMEs nationwide.

This Roadshow stopover is anticipated to gather entrepreneurs from all over Pampanga. At present, Pampanga’s vibrant economy is being propelled by its robust pool of micro, small, and medium enterprises or MSMEs. These MSMEs have been known to showcase the locals’ ingenuity and craftsmanship through manufacturing and exporting textile and furniture as well as their delightful taste and impressive techniques in preparing pastries and delicacies and in meat processing. In addition, it is home to budding startups offering various services and products.

Pampanga is quickly becoming one of the key investment destinations in the country as it is positioned to be a logistics and ICT hub thanks to its strategic location and excellent infrastructure facilities such as the Clark International Airport, Subic-Clark Tarlac Expressway, and Clark Freeport Zone. These infrastructures open the potential to develop Central Luzon’s agriculture sector as well as to tap into its water, power, and telecommunication facilities.

 

The Elevate National Roadshow will be in Clark on August 13, 2018.

**Actual dates might be subject to change.

 


The Elevate National Roadshow is accepting applications for startups to share and showcase their ideas while giving them valuable mentorship and support. While the Roadshow only includes 5 cities, applications are open to all cities nationwide.

Each of the five cities’ winners will be invited to be part of the Innovation Summit. The Innovation Summit, the biggest event of Impact Hub Manila, will feature its renowned partners, potential investors, key movers, and industry icons.
