Startup CDO First Meet Up
Cagayan de Oro, July 29, 2014 – As July 29 was a holiday, we took the opportunity to catch up with the CDO startup founders at Coffeeworks, Xavier University. It was an informal meetup with most of the groups that were created during the first Startup Weekend CDO as well as other startup founders who are already doing business. It was interesting to note that most of the teams are all interested to continue with their ideas or continue to work as a team. Ideacamp’s founder, Marl Ian Dionaldo, albeit solo in his quest, continued his vision and is now close to getting to his MVP.
Briefly discussed during the meet-up were the tools to use in project management and how to start their organizations formally to enable them to get into contracts, be able to setup bank accounts, etc. The pros and cons of between setting up a single proprietorship business and corporations were also brought up.
More meet-ups will be conducted in the future. A regular monthly meet-up may happen sooner than later as the startup founders are really eager to learn from each other and are very much willing to support each others endeavors. Long running startups present were Syntactics, Inc., Redlemon Digital, Barato.com.ph and newly started company Webnified was also present.
