Technology Business Incubation Organizational Structure
DOST PCAARRD MMSU AGRI-AQUA TECHNOLOGY
BUSINESS INCUBATOR (ATBI)
The Agri-Aqua Technology Business Incubator (ATBI) Program is one of the strategies identified by DOST-PCAARRD to commercialize the technologies and outputs of local agri-aqua research and development (R&D) inputs. It is established to encourage, support, and nurture the development of mature agriculture, aquatic, and natural resources (AANR)-based technologies into viable commercial agribusiness ventures for economic development.
Dap-ayan, in its Ilocano context, is a place of convergence—to relax, to meet for community concern, and a venue for other activities. Thus, MMSU ATBI Dap-Ayan is set to become a commonplace of convergence, communication and collaboration between and among key players of development.
How does the ATBI support individuals to build a startup business?
As a part of its goal to encourage the establishment of technology-based businesses, ATBI provides assistance to incubatees in business planning and actual business operations.
ATBI conducts seminars and training that can help entrepreneurs improve their knowledge about business operations. It also provides a venue where an incubatee can further develop his or her product
DOST-MMSU Bannuar Technology Business Incubator
The DOST-MMSU Bannuar TBI is an incubator funded by the Department of Science and Technology Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) under the Higher Education Institution Readiness for Innovation and Technopreneurship (HEIRIT) Program. It aims to nurture and develop tech-based and tech-enabled products aimed at creating viable enterprises and improving existing businesses that will contribute to revenue and employment generation in the Region.
