New partners join LSPU technology business incubation programs

The Laguna State Polytechnic University (LSPU) is set for an exciting journey as new partners hop in its technology business incubation initiatives, June 26. 

Insiklo Sustainable Agriventures Corporation (ISAC) and Donath Pandesal Station (DPS), represented by Mr. Mariano M. Navasero and Mr. Jonathan T. Sinca, respectively, inked the memorandum of agreement (MOA) with LSPU for its technology business incubation programs supported by the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD).

The MOA signing was conducted at the LSPU-Los Banos Campus (LSPU-LBC) Board Room during the hybrid second quarter monitoring and evaluation meeting of the Intellectual Property and Technology Business Management (IP-TBM) and Agri-Aqua Technology Business Incubator (ATBI). 

ISAC will be collaborating with the DOST-PCAARRD-LSPU Intellectual Property and Technology Business Management (IP-TBM) for the project entitled “Project 1G: Enhancing the IP-TBM in Laguna State Polytechnic University” under the  Regional Agri-Aqua Innovation System Enhancement (RAISE) Program and headed by Mr. Charlie O. Siarot, Project Leader. 

Meanwhile, DPS will be working with the DOST-PCAARRD-LSPU Agri-Aqua Technology Business Incubator (ATBI) under the leadership of Engr. Isabelita T. Domingo for the conduct of collaborative technology business incubation programs and activities to work towards sustainable development. 

Incubatees who attended the meeting online will be personally visited for the signing of their respective MOAs.

The agreement covers mentoring and training of the LSPU partners to enhance their technical and business capabilities. Under this partnership, the university will also assist in securing the Intellectual Property (IP) of the incubatees’ products, adhering to incubation policies and the Technology Transfer Protocol (TTP) of LSPU. 

Ms. Mary Ann L. Barile, Manager of DOST-PCAARRD-LSPU-ATBI, emphasized that the program highlights the utilization of university technology through the incubators. Through LSPU’s Research and Development (R&D) efforts, university technologies are generated to address community needs.  

“They are the university incubators for commercialization and pre-commercialization of university-generated technologies. Papaano na-u-utilize ‘yong mga technologies ng university through R&D at papaano nakakatulong ang university through the incubators to reach the community,” Ms. Barile explained. 

Mr. Charlie O. Siarot, Project Leader of LSPU-LBC IP-TBM, shared that a proposal for the second phase of the RAISE Program was already submitted to DOST-PCAARRD in anticipation of the termination of the first phase of the program this June. 

“With that proposal, sana ay makatulong kami sa inyo na ma-promote ang inyong technologies,” Mr. Siarot said. 

“Kapag may natapos, may mag-o-open. For Phase 2 RAISE, mas magiging matindi ang ating mga gagawing programs sa inyo… Ang ating mga existing incubatees ang inaasahan to support the incubation for two years,” Ms. Barile added. 

The proposed second phase of the RAISE program is under review by the DOST-PCAARRD and is expected to be implemented by 2025. ###
