PARTNERSHIP GALLERY


CITIZEN INNOVATOR
(NOT ELITIST)

Ni2 is the National Innovators Initiative to relentlessly advance Filipino Innovation so as to be accessible to everyday Filipinos – a force every one of us can apply to everyday challenges we encounter at work, in business, in life.


OUR 7,100 ISLANDS
(NOT SILICON VALLEY)

Where we envision Filipino Innovation as fast, agile, resource-friendly and crafty problem-solving with a heart (fueled by empathy, compassion and love) and especially relevant to the challenges and opportunities endemic to our 7,100 islands and 100,000,000 citizens.


CAREERS ACCELERATED
(PEOPLE BEFORE INNOVATION)

Where we nurture Filipino Innovation as a national grassroots initiative with a special focus on empowering SME entrepreneurs, career professionals and Filipino youth to thrive and succeed in the Future of work, of learning, of impact.


PARTNERSHIP @ SCALE
(WE ALL HAVE A ROLE)

Where we pursue Filipino Innovation as a multi-sector collaboration involving the private sector, educational institutions, national government and LGUs, and socio-civic organizations.

I can promise you now, the National Innovators Initiative is not a charity, feel-good, kumbaya undertaking: it’s a nuts and bolts action-oriented, practice-heavy and data-driven way to make the world a radically better place, while giving to our businesses, our schools, our cities, our careers – in other words, Ni2 is about giving each and everyone of you a radically more successful and prosperous future full of growth and opportunity.

Ni2’s INNOVATOR SPIRIT

I CARE
I CAN
I WILL
NOTHING WILL STOP ME

Because I’ve found my answer to

Who am I?
Why am I here?

When we look at this Innovator Spirit, what does it mean for each of us?

 

If we run schools that educate human beings – what does the Innovator Spirit mean for our students and alumni, our faculty? Are we missing anything if we ignore this insight of the Innovator Spirit? What more can we do?

 

If we are running a business or a local government, if we have teams under us, tens, hundreds, thousands of employees, millions of customers and citizens we affect – what does the Innovator Spirit mean for the challenges and opportunities we face everyday? Can we have better hope if we can unleash the Innovator Spirit? What are we missing? How much more can we and our businesses and our cities be if we unleash the Innovator Spirit?

I’m telling you now; I’m guaranteeing you now and later you will meet many many individuals who are living proof that yes, the Innovator Spirit can be unleashed. And not only can it be done, it can be done at scale. And not only at scale, it can be done in 100K Accelerator cycles. So 100,000 Filipino Innovators by 2023 – we will demo this for you later, you will be the first to see how.

This changes everything, everything for all of us. Because some of you here will adapt this innovator spirit at scale – for your workforce and your students and alumni and faculty. And this will change everything.

Stories from INNOVATOR STORIES

TO BE AN INNOVATOR
Is to change the world,
to be myself - to the fullest.

Live my deepest truth and so fulfill
my highest potential and greatest promise.


An Innovator is an original
who will not be conformed or stopped:
that’s how they light the darkness.

For universities, corporations, government
