Planting the GOAB Seed to a Startup Founder
At today’s Founder’s Friday meetup, we were glad to hear how GOAB had helped one startup founder in Cebu. Jonas Kee Quilantang Founder/CEO of Uniform Solutions attended the 1st GOAB conference in Boracay last 2013 where he met Khailee Ng, managing director of 500 Startups, a Silicon Valley-based investor and accelerator with offices in Asia.
His first conversation with Khailee made him to realize that he could never be funded if he did not have a functioning product and actual business. His “startup idea” alone was never going to be enough to make his dream come true to “get funded”.
