Drew Calin, CEO of Greenhouse, interviews Paolo Rentero, co-founder of Digiteer and TechShake, during IGNITE 2019 on June 24 to 25, 2019. Paolo and his partners at TechShake co-founded IGNITE as an innovation conference that brings together the startup community in the Philippines, Southeast Asia, and beyond.

You can watch the full video below.

Paolo talks about his experiences working in the Philippines startup community and his efforts to develop it together with his partners.

He believes that the Philippines has great potential to become a hub for the startup ecosystem – not just on a national level, but a regional level as well. Specifically, the Philippines has room to grow when it comes to market maturity. However, it’s also an opportunity for B2B startups to help develop these new businesses more efficiently.


Greenhouse’s central vision is to help businesses and startups grow in fast-growth markets.

We have a list of market entry and business services to aid companies in setting up their business and launching new products, as well as wellness-focused workspaces that help nurture and inspire teams.
