2 Davao startups goes to Silicon Valley

by Mai Gevera-Macapagat

DAVAO CITY, Jan. 16 (PIA) -- Davao City ’s entries to the ON3 Pitching Competition, Piclyf and Radgreen Solutions were two of the three Grand Prize winners who will be brought to Silicon Valley for a three-month exposure, immersion, and funding mission.

ICT Davao President Bert Barriga announced this earlier today as both entries landed at the top spot and bested all the other start-up companies from other parts of the country.

The competition was aimed to look for potential ideas generated from the innovative minds of Filipinos that can be developed for introduction to the global markets.

The ON3 Pitching is organized by the Science and Technology Advisory Council of Silicon Valley (STAC-SV).

Piclyf, created by Eric Su, is a new social network site wherein you use pictures to chronicle your life, or in short, a picture diary. It is fully loaded with the features such as earning badges, following your friends, tagging, and a whole lot more.

Radgreen Solutions, represented by Ricky Dayot, introduces a new technology to help alleviate climate change: The Pyroclave. It is a no-burn waste processor for infectious and hazardous wastes. The Pyroclave technology utilizes the “Hydroburn” procedure, which enables production of intense amounts of heat at a lower cost, thus making it economical and environment-friendly.

Both Piclyf and Radgreen Solutions were the

semi-finalists in the Mindanao Leg and were subsidized by the DOST XI to the ON3 Pitching Competition Finals at the SMX Convention Center in Manila last July 30, 2011. (PIA/Mai Gevera-Macapagat)
