Adviser Mar Casillan and Trustee Ferdz de la Cruz (from Manila Water Co.) chipped in to the Innovation Grants Fund, which is meant to support our Technopreneurship Initiative. Pilipinas Shell (c/o Cesar Romero) and Cravings Group (c/o Trustee Rico Trinidad) also pledged to contribute.

We thank our members’ commitment to support the Technopreneurship Thrust of UPERDFI! The funds will be used by our UP innovators in bringing out their ideas and research from the labs, out to the market.

While the Partners Conference scheduled on October 2 is being reset to a later date as the Innovation Committee firms up our role in the UP Innovation Ecosystem, UPERDFI is continuing its Technopreneurship initiatives behind the scenes.
