|Katalyst.PH Announces USD 1M Fund For Filipino Startups|
The numbers of Philippine startup companies are not as many when compared to other regions, and if place side by side with India or Israel, ours really falls short of comparison. However, that number grows bigger and bigger as days go by, especially with the help from all sorts of "seeders" and "backers", one of the most recent is a venture capital firm named Katalyst.PH
The Katalyst.PH is a brainchild of Jose "Joe" Maristel III, a Filipino investor and serial entrepreneur. The firm recently announced a new wave of investment fund exclusively for Filipino startup communities amounting to one million US dollars or more than 48 million pesos when converted to our local currency. That money is from Joe's own account, as he does not take funds from the outside.
