Backed by reputable partners from the Philippine Digital Asset Exchange (PDAX), Oak Drive Ventures Inc., and Magellan Digital Investment Group (MDIG), A-Labs boasts of its strong network of mentors, experts, and capital partners who will support the startups in growing their ventures.
A-Labs aims to back startups and founders at the grassroots level through investment funding, advisory, and structured programs like hackathons, incubation and accelerator programs targeting specific verticals and stages of development and growth.
“We believe that the building blocks of Web3 are found in the Philippines. The country has much to offer in the Web3 space. With that, we invite proponents of the space to get in touch with us as we build a better future through Web3,” said Lance Pormarejo, A-Labs’s Executive Director.
Pormarejo said they wanted to grow their line-up of partners across venture capital, technology, and ecosystem to further support the startups coming out of the labs.
Before the end of the year, A-Labs aims to release its first iteration of the State of the Archipelago, a quarterly report on all things Web3 in the Philippines.
