SCAREDEV attends the Forum on Support to Innovation and Startups as a continued effort in promoting innovation in the province of Bohol conducted by the Department of Trade and Industry-Bohol Provincial Office and the Department of Science and Technology-Bohol, in cooperation with the Fablab Bohol.
The activity aims to support the local innovators and makers in the process of establishing their startups and planning to launch their products or services. It is also a way of helping them to fast track the development of their products for market testing.
For this activity, they have invited resource persons from the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI), the government’s leading agency promoting innovation in the country. The TAPI can support startups through technical consultancy including engineering design services, patenting and licensing services and also in providing grants and venture financing for new and emerging projects.
