Ateneo de Davao University President Fr. Joel E. Tabora, S.J., agreed to provide support and funding for the five teams who won during the first business pitching competition held last 2 February 2018 at the Finster Auditorium, 7/F Finster Hall.
The event served as the culminating activity for the Ateneo de Davao Method of Innovation and Technopreneurship (ADMIT) bootcamp for faculty members.
The support would be through the University Research Council (URC) by providing research support to winners of the ADMIT bootcamp-1 following its meeting last 7 February 2018. The support provided by URC would be in the form of a research grant to validate their business ideas based on the recommendations provided by the URC.
