A HAVEN OF INNOVATION 🚀 | With the aim to foster a more conducive environment for the development of startups and IoT projects, our City Government formally inaugurated the Naga City IoT (Internet-of-Things) Laboratory, a first-of-its-kind facility in Southern Luzon featuring equipment and technical training/mentoring services for product prototyping, research, and development. This was made possible by funding support from the National Innovation Council/National Economic Development Authority through the FY 2022 Innovation Grant for the Naga City Startup Ecosystem Development Program, as well as our partners, Ateneo de Naga University, ThingsPH. Inc., and Packetworx Inc.
To mark this monumental occasion, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held yesterday, July 18, 2023, at Ateneo de Naga University’s Dolan Hall, attended by guests and representatives from key government agencies such as the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), Startup Development Committee, the local startup community -HAKA Naga, and the Naga City Investment Board (NCIB) of the city government. Following the ceremony, a Memorandum of Agreement was signed at Madrigal Amphitheatre, forging all partners’ commitment to realize the expansion of IoT technology and the startup industry in the city and region as a whole.
The Naga City IoT Laboratory is located at the 4F Dolan Hall, Ateneo de Naga University, Bagumbayan Campus. This facility is open to all startup enterprises, students and/or faculty who are working on IoT projects.
