What is ON3?

In general, ON3 is open to Filipino startup companies who have an existing product and are looking for funding and/or global business development.  Startup companies may be involved in technology, including consumer web, internet, mobile, wireless, social media, gaming, software, clean and biotech. 

You must apply and be approved to participate in the full ON3 event.

 ON3 is a 3 day program that teaches/coaches you on how to pitch, allows you to practice pitching with a coach/mentor, and do the final pitch in front of potential investors.  The grand prize is a 3-month stay at Plug and Play, a Silicon Valley business incubator.  "The "pitch" is nothing more (or less) than a short sales presentation that a would-be entrepreneur makes to try and interest potential investors in a proposed deal"**.

* "A startup company or startup is a company with a limited operating history. These companies, generally newly created, are in a phase of development and research for markets. The term became popular internationally during the dot-com bubble when a great number of dot-com companies were founded.

Startup companies can come in all forms, but the phrase "startup company" is often associated with high growth, technology oriented companies. Investors are generally most attracted to those new companies distinguished by their risk/reward profile and scalability. That is, they have lower bootstrapping costs, higher risk, and higher potential return on investment. Successful startups are typically more scalable than an established business, in the sense that they can potentially grow rapidly with limited investment of capital, labor or land.Startups encounter several unique options for funding. Venture capital firms and angel investors may help startup companies begin operations, exchanging cash for an equity stake. In practice though, many startups are initially funded by the founders themselves.....

A critical task in setting up a business is to conduct research in order to validate, assess and develop the ideas or business concepts in addition to opportunities to establish further and deeper understanding on the ideas or business concepts as well as their commercial potential."  Source: Wikepedia.
