The Philippines’ Top 40 Trendy Startups of 2017

Startups are known for crashing after a few months, but these 20 companies pulled through and remained strong.


We all know that startups are a risky venture, even more so if you’re a startup in the Philippines. You basically start a company without the assurance of profit or return of investment. There’s no “tried-and-tested” business strategy or a “cookie-cutter” approach on how to run a startup. It’s either you strike gold or you strike out. That’s the only thing about startups that you can be sure about.

In the Philippines, a lot of entrepreneurs hope to get that pot of gold at the end of all their efforts. While there have been numerous casualties on the journey of startups, there are some that stood above the rest. We’re here now to look at 20 startups that not only survived but generated enough to classify themselves as the cream of the crop, according to Inc.
