The Search for the 2015 GreenOvators | Round 1




greenovators-800x510

Early August, a young emerging hack-a-thon called “The Search for the 2015 GreenOvators” started the search for ideas with the potential to make a revolution in the greening of MSMEs (Micro Small Medium Enterprises). The workshop and hack-a-thon’s first round out of three was last Saturday, August 29 2015.

The event was held in the Philippine Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ social hall from around 8:00 AM to 7:30 PM. Many great and green ideas were presented to hopefully raise awareness or form a habit for the sake of the country’s future. Some familiar faces were present in the GreenOvators hack-a-thon — Raket.ph‘s CEO Lyle Jover, a judge in the pitching battleground, and Katalyst.ph‘s Pinky Natividad, a mentor for these aspiring green-trepreneurs. These teams went through a 5 hour long roast to make the best Business Model — the biggest criterion for the round.

 


 

Some of these teams, namely JuanBill and ShakeStop, considered integrating

Bitcoins into their work, by either accepting them for sales for ShakeStop, or somehow centered the application’s usage around the crypto-currency. Will the usage of Bitcoin be an edge for these teams, or will it just be another turn-off for the GreenOvator judges?
