Top 40 Hottest Startups In The Philippines

These 40 startups have the most unique ideas to keep expanding into great companies


Startup companies are the height of every entrepreneurial experience. You have a unique, original idea for a business, refine it in partnership with several sponsors and solicitors and investors, and then continue to build the product into something amazing by themselves. Like a delicate flower, startups are fragile, yet unique. To have their company be successful, they need to build a product that catches the attention of many users and consumers before they can truly blossom. And like flowers, these businesses need an ecosystem to survive, and they need to adapt to these ecosystem to bloom.

In this list, Inc. SEA had compiled this list of diverse privately-owned startup companies that range from saltwater powered lamps, to financial services to the poor, to connecting pharmacies together on a digital platform, and other neat tech stuff as well.
