Through collective action, this partnership between Draper Startup House Ventures and QBO Innovation Hub fosters a well-supported, resilient, entrepreneur community.

Apart from access to local opportunities through QBO’s partnerships and accelerators, Draper Startup House Ventures complements by bridging these startups to opportunities beyond geographical borders. Leveraging on Draper Startup House Ventures’ network of global partners, comprising of the Draper Ventures Network with access to 23 global funds, accelerators, incubators, Angels, VCs, PEs, niche investment firms, alternative debt firms, consulting firms and corporate investment arms who are interested in various opportunities not limiting themselves to physical borders, Filipino startups have the opportunity to launch and successfully scale their startups.
