FROM ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECT TO SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
SlashIgnite conducted a human design thinking training to the Arayat community of The Society for Conservation of Philippine Wetlands. This engagement led to the linking of the community with tourism social entrepreneurs. Today, a Trekking tour in Mount Makiling to support the Arayat community has been established, and is running until today.

SlashIgnite helped develop TheSparkProject.com in its infancy years. From an idea of an IT professional, SlashIgnite incubated the idea and facilitated the administrative needs of the team, until it became a fully-registered independent business. Today, TheSparkProject is the Philippine's leading crowdfunding website for emerging startups and passion projects.

Based in a state university in the Philippines, WVSU-GTBI supports the creation and growth of more innovative herbal and natural products, organic agriculture, bioinformatics, technology- based and ICT-related companies in the country with focus on startup software, content, hardware, and solution provider enterprises whose business models incorporate open technologies.
