Steer among Top 10 Finalists of Smart & PLDT's Startup Innovation Challenge
Steer made it to the top 10 finalists of the Startup Innovation Challenge, a program by Smart and PLDT that aims to recognize innovative ideas that bring solutions to problems, from the basic to the most glaring ones, in the country today.
The finalists will learn the key areas where they can collaborate with Smart and PLDT as well as the process of how to work with both organizations and their networks. The startups will also get the chance to use the APIs, data, and technology of Smart and PLDT in order to improve their startups and potentially create a solution that Smart and PLDT can use or resell.
In addition to collaborating with PLDT Innolab, Smart, Ideaspace, QBO, and other partners, Steer is working closely with PLDT on creating solutions for construction, facility management, and other segments where advanced technologies, such as Machine Learning and Internet of Things (IoT), can be applied.
Towards the end of the program in November, Steer will be presenting to the representatives of Smart and PLDT in the hopes of further developing business opportunities for Steer among their client base. On top of having the opportunity to land a commercial agreement with Smart and PLDT as a future client, the winners of the challenge will also get a chance to win up to PHP 100,000, 5G Smartphones, Beyond Fiber Plans, and a Fortinet FortiWifi-60E-S with 1 year UTP license.
The Steer Team is looking forward to this great opportunity to work with PLDT, Smart, and other partners to drive innovation among companies in the Philippines, especially in the construction and facility management segments! To know more about this story, read the full press release HERE.
