STARTUP QC PROGRAM DETAILS

RATIONALE

In response to Republic Act 11337 better known as the “Innovative Startup Act”,  the Quezon City Government recognizes the important role of startups as a reflection of a diverse, vibrant economy and its active, empowered citizens by enacting City Ordinance No. SP 3019, S-2021 entitled: “An Ordinance Institutionalizing the Startup QC Program and Appropriating Funds Therefore”

The StartUp QC Program was created by the city government to foster inclusive economic development growth through innovative companies by streamlining government and non-government policies to create new jobs, improve production processes, and advance innovation and trade in the city.


WHAT

The StartUp QC Program was envisioned to: (1) create new jobs and opportunities, (2) stimulate the entrepreneurial spirit, (3) promote innovation, and (4) strengthen the start-up culture in Quezon City.

The objective of the program is the formation of business hubs and centers that will inspire and empower QCitizens to build innovative business models that can help provide solutions to social issues and dilemmas.

The city government will provide a grant to innovative start-up ventures that are still at their early stages but have promising and viable products or services for execution.  The program will have three (3) phases: application and evaluation, business model development, and product development, all with curated activities to mentor startup entrepreneurs, refine and finalize business models from conceptualization to implementation.


PHASES

PHASE 1: APPLICATION AND EVALUATION PHASE

Applicants will submit their applications via the QC e-Services Website and will go through an initial evaluation process whereby qualified applicants will be shortlisted by a Screening Committee .

PHASE 2: BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PHASE

The shortlisted participants will be connected to a pool of experts, coaches, and mentors to support them through the initial stages of startup business operations and business model development and prepare these startups for the Final Presentation to a Program Committee. 

As the culminating activity, the Final Presentation will be the basis of the Program Committee to select the startups who will be eligible for grant funds (“the Awardees”) and proceed to the Product Development Phase. 

PHASE 3: PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT  PHASE

Startup Awardees/beneficiaries will automatically be part of a program of activities to refine their products or services that will lead to full business operations. During this phase, other non-monetary benefits will also be given such as training activities and access to investors.
