Dr. Jason Ongpeng participated in the Technopreneurship Faculty Training 2019

Last September 16 to 21, 2019, Dr. Jason Ongpeng participated in the Technopreneurship Faculty Training 2019 at Citadines Millenium, Ortigas. The training was hosted by PhilDev, in partnership with UNDP in the Philippines and the Australian Embassy in the Philippines through the Innovation for Social Impact Partnership (ISIP) project.

PhilDev and UC Berkeley co-designed the training modules which aim to enhance the current outline of the T101 subject by integrating social impact/social entrepreneurship concepts in its design.

This event brought together over 70 professors from various universities in the Philippines to undergo faculty training on teaching Technopreneurship 101. The ISIP Faculty Training on Ensuring Social Impact in Technopreneurship Teaching aims to enhance the capacity of professors to teach entrepreneurship and couple this with social impact using UN SDG framework, providing professors with teaching knowledge, tools, and techniques which are relevant, localized, and effective.

Leading the training is Ken Singer, Managing Director of the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology, and David Law, CEO of Venture Dojo. Both of them taught the world-class Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship in the training while also integrating social impact and social entrepreneurship concepts and frameworks.

The Faculty Training is one of the activities of the Innovation for Social Impact Partnership (ISIP), a project co-implemented by UNDP Philippines and PhilDev Foundation, with generous support from Australia In the Philippines. Learn more about the Faculty Training by visiting
