Clark Freeport  |  October 2014 

Metro Clark has time and again, proven itself to be a formidable center for global ICT/BPO investment, with its strategic location, state-of-the-art infrastructure, deep talent resource and investor-friendly business climate.  As such, Clark is the undisputed center for ICT excellence in this part of the country. 

Fueled by drive to further promote ICT investment and employment, Metro Clark ICT Council (MCICTC), in association with Clark Freeport, the Department of Science and Technology ICT Office, and TechTalks.ph brings the first ever STARTUP WEEKEND CLARK this 21-23 November 2014.

Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate and empower individuals, teams and communities.  It is a pitching and business development competition geared towards producing a new breed of IT and knowledge entrepreneurs from parts of the world.  Currently, SW has held over 1,500 startup events in some 120 countries and 723 cities; participated by over 123,000 entrepreneurs and producing some 13,000 startups.

Startup Weekend Clark is the first officially-sanctioned SW event in Luzon outside Metro Manila.  Also, on that date, Clark will be competing with 200+ cities globally for the Global Startup Battle.
