WEAVING NEW PATHS: Naga’s Startup programs showcased in HABI-NID 2023

Naga City’s startup ecosystem development program continues to make major strides.
One of the Innovation Grant recipients of NEDA-NIC,  Naga participated in the 2023 National Innovation Day (NID) Celebration in the Philippines held last April 28, 2023 at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay, Manila.
 The first face-to-face celebration of Filipino Innovation, NID marked a significant milestone in the country’s pursuit of a dynamic innovation ecosystem supporting inclusive socioeconomic development. The event provided a fitting platform for the city’s pioneering programs in startup ecosystem development. It also showcased local startups in Naga that are backed by the local government through the Naga City Investment Board (NCIB).
With the theme “HABI: Huddle. Analyze. Build. Innovate” or HABI, 2023 highlights initiatives, celebrates milestones, and promotes innovation in the Philippines. Participated by more than 400 guests and attendees, the celebration featured 20 private and government innovations under the 5 categories:
  •  People
  • Economy
  •  Environment
  •  Institution
  •  Ecosystem
The Naga City Startup Ecosystem Development Program of LGU Naga is one of the 13 proposals that received the Innovation Grant Fund last year from the National Innovation Council from among 440+ proposals nationwide. The Naga City Exhibit was also made possible through the support of
HAKA Naga stands for Harong Katuod Naga, a non-profit organization that officially represents the Naga City startup community. It is best described as a Startup Handholding Initiative for Naga-Registered Entrepreneurs (SHINE). HAKA Naga envisions developing an ecosystem that would spark technopreneurship in the Bicol Region, but also welcomes startup founders from anywhere in the world.
