Startup Weekend 3 is Now Open

Startup Weekend 3 Cebu is now celebrating the 3rd year of its inception thanks to the organizing committee, key persons, and sponsors who believe in their cause. A press conference was made last April 30 at Acoustica Grill in Mandaue City to announce that they are already accepting participants for the competition.

The Basis for Startup Weekend 3


Startup Weekend 3 was created to allow marketable tech ideas from Visayas and Mindanao region to be incubated.

Startup Weekend 3 will commence on June 7-9 and will be held in one of the premier universities in Cebu City, the University of San Carlos (Main Campus).

The demand for startup weekends has increased since more and more people are now aware of the benefits that they can get from it. The May 2012 leg was very successful that the organizers eventually decided to have a subsequent event on the same year, which was held in November.

Startup Weekend 3 is a launchpad of ideas for tech communities and interested investors, where competitors will be given 54 hours to present their marketable tech ideas.

“Startup Weekend is an event driven by the grassroots community – not corporations. Part of the SWC3 story is that I or we
have passed the baton over to the new organizers. By this, we have accomplished one of our goals: to
do skills transfer and share best practices with others,” shared Miss Tina Amper, Startup Weekend 3 organizer/adviser and founder of

Startup Weekend 3 Co-Organizers


In partnership with, DOST-ICT, and JCI Mandaue, Startup Weekend 3 was organized.

Paul Villacorta, creator and owner of All and Cebu Directories Co., acted as the head of the organizing committee.

“We will try to duplicate, if not surpass, the achievement of our predecessors in successfully staging Startup Weekend Cebu. We, the new Startup Weekend Cebu organizers, are inviting technopreneurs and startups in the Visayas and Mindanao to join in this year’s gathering,” Villacorta said.

Ramil Montealto, Junior Chamber International Mandaue Executive Vice President – Internal, and Keith Lumanog, Web Ninja Mobile creator,
also played vital roles in organizing Startup Weekend 3 with Villacorta.

Startup weekends were first intended in USA to be a platform for creative tech ideas for possible investors to launch.

Activities for Startup Weekend 3

June 7 will be the warm up day where all competitors, mentors, and judges alike will get acquainted with each other. Ideas will be pitched by competitors while investors choose which team they would like to work with. Ideas then will be polished with the help of mentors and prototypes will be made and finally presented on the 3rd day of the event.

To grace on the first day of Startup Weekend 3 is none other than DOST-ICT commissioner Monchito B. Ibrahim.

Frank Largo and Lourdes O. Montenegro of USC Department of Economics also works as organizers of this event.

Bunny Pages of Moon Cafe & Thirsty, Rhett Jones of Synacy, Calen Legaspi of Orange and Bronze Software Labs, and Jean Patrick Bisson of ClickingLabs are the judges.

Jerome Locson of, Kenneth Ruelan of Caresharing, Elmar Valmores of Zoomstra Inc., Val Villar of UX, Fleire Castro of Third Team Media, Kahlil Corazo of SWNext, Bert Padilla of TekWorx, Ruben Licera of RLComm International, and Wilson Ng of Ng Khai are the mentors.
