With the support of the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD), LSPU has been championing technology incubation towards business take off by providing assistance to startup and spin off enterprises. 

Joining onsite and online, 12 incubatees reported and reviewed the progress of their enterprises as well as their best practices. They also shared how ATBI and IP-TBM assisted them in developing their startup businesses and plans moving forward. 

Mr. Joseph Mario M. Navasero, founder of Insiklo Sustainable Agriventures Corporation and one of the LSPU incubatees, shared that establishing a network is an important factor in boosting one’s enterprise. He extended his gratitude to ATBI and IP-TBM for assisting him in his startup. 

“Every step of the way from registration, product development, labeling, grants, and contract signing with different partners, kailangang may mag ga-guide sa atin at ginawa ng ATBI ‘yon para sa akin. If you really want to move forward, stick with your vision and goals. ‘Yong goal natin is to assist people. Ang technology ay sana makarating sa kung sino dapat ang matulungan,” Mr. Navasero said. 

Likewise, Mrs. Rose A. Peña of Derickrose Food Products Manufacturing presented their business journey and shared tips on how they pooled investors and consumers. She also shared how they marketed their products by displaying them from one establishment to another to create and increase product demand. 

Ms. Mary Ann L. Barile, Manager of DOST-PCAARRD-LSPU-ATBI, challenged the incubatees: “By 2025, there will be new incubatees. This means pwede pong i-adopt ng bagong incubatees ang inyong technologies. Lahat kayo ay katulong na ng mga bagong incubatees para maka-take-off ang kanilang negosyo.”

Dr. Robert C. Agatep, Vice President for Research Development and Extension (VPRDE), assured the University’s support for the program and hoped for future collaborations with the incubatees.
