MIDDLE ROAD, SINGAPORE — Explora’s Co-Founders JR Felipe and Perry Sumakote are delegates representing the Philippines at the annual StartUp AsiaBerlin. Attended by 16 delegates from Berlin, Singapore, Philippines, India, and Indonesia, this gathering connects startup ecosystems in Germany and in Asia, and is well attended by entrepreneurs, business accelerators, and investors.

Currently, there are over 150 startups in the Philippines. This number is set to increase up to 500 with a total valuation of US$2 billion by 2020.
