The Hero at Philippines Satellite 2012

The Payroll Hero team pitching at Philippines Satellite

Payroll Hero took the Judges’ Choice at the recent Philippines Satellite.

Philippines Satellite saw seven companies pitch with Payroll Hero emerging as the winner of the Judges’ Choice Award. From the startup pitches, it is clear that the Philippines presents abundant opportunities for startups to capitalize on. With the rapid development of the country, much is being demanded in terms of infrastructure and this can be solved by the implementation of innovative technologies. Check out the pre-Philippines Satellite post for the full list of the seven pitching companies.

The community at Philippines Satellite

The pitching startups presented solutions ranging from employee and project management tools to getting you on the hottest nightlife actions in each city. With the obvious talent and understanding of the market’s needs, the community would definitely benefit with placement of stronger support and infrastructure. Currently, there seem to be a limited amount of mentorship and funding support for the community. One can only envision the leaps the community can take once the right ingredients are in place.

The e27 team had a great time in Manila catching up with the local community and finding our more about the startups there. View our photo album on the Philippines Satellite here.
