Now accepting applications for IdeaSpace 2021 program!

The startup support organization has chosen the following tech startups as its 2020 program winners:

1. Agro-Digital PH - Agritech startup 
2. Humble - Sustainability and circular living startup
3. Workbean - Workplace tech startup

These three teams have shown tremendous growth throughout the acceleration program. They address urgent and emerging problems while creating new opportunities for industries, shared IdeaSpace President Butch Meily.

Agro-Digital PH aims to build a fairer ecosystem where the work of farmers is justly rewarded through developing the tools, knowledge, and networks necessary to leverage social organization in farmers’ groups and cooperatives, establish standards, and coordinate fulfillment. 

On the other hand, Humble works to help people practice circular living by taking things that people no longer want or need through online bookings for home collections, with the items being reused by non-profit organizations or upcycled into new pieces.

Lastly, Workbean aims to be Asia’s largest directory of company cultures, helping professionals and companies find the best fit.
