Local tech startup communities are great when seen from the perspective of proximity and geography. This is the main goal of the Represent movement, since its roots in a cork board and post-it notes in LA in March this year. The Represent movement has since grown to become a more sophisticated list of map pins categorizing startup involvement into the following: startups, accelerators, incubators, co-working spaces and VCs & angels.
The Represent map has since been open-sourced, giving way for other communities to create their own startup maps, such as Represent.SG for Singapore.
To accommodate the local startup scene in the Philippines, development team ProudCloud has recently launched Represent.PH, which aims to list local teams and investors. The project was spearheaded by Jay Fajardo and Victor Solis, who are no strangers to the Philippine startup scene, having been involved in various capacities as founders, mentors and investors.
The team also plans to open source their Ruby on Rails implementation of the Represent map, which should make it popular among Rails developers.
Like its international counterparts, Represent.PH lists facilities and teams into the same five categories, plus consulting firms. The list so far includes 35 startups, one accelerator, four incubators, one co-working space, two investors and 14 consulting firms. Want to get listed? Head on to the site, and submit your team’s or organization’s information for review.
