Filipino members of the prestigious Forbes 30 Under 30 club—recipients of the business media platform’s annual citation for young people—came together for a night of networking and camaraderie in Makati City on Tuesday (June 28).
Hosted by entrepreneur Victor Lim and his Kraver’s Cantees startup, the get-together was also attended by prominent members of the local startup community, including founders and representatives of venture capital firms and funds.
The Forbes 30 Under 30 honorees spotted at the event included Lim himself, Rexy Dorado of Kumu, Henry Motte Muñoz of Edukasyon.ph, Billie Dumaliang of Masungi Georeserve, Georgianna Carlos of Fetch Naturals, photojournalist Gab Mejia, drone pioneer and Earnie startup founder Matt Cua, Shawntel Nicole Nieto of One Cainta Food Program, Ariane Lim of AcadArena, Carmina Bayombong of InvestEd, Ryan Gersava of Virtualahan, and Shahab Shabibi of Machine Ventures.
Others who attended the event were Paulo Campos of Kaya Ventures, Winchell Wong and Jeremy Young of Gentree Fund, Catrina Magsadia of Foxmont Partners, and many others.
There was no program, save for a short speech by Lim, who thanked everyone for making time to see each other in real life on a rainy Tuesday night. He also thanked the sponsors who made the event possible, including Quest Ventures, Kaya Founders, Foxmont Capital, and Oak Drive Ventures.
Forbes’s 30-Under-30 list honors young changemakers and trailblazers who are making an impact in their respective spaces and industries. Honorees are inducted into an exclusive worldwide network of likeminded individuals across the world and are given access to a wide scope of forums, lectures, and events, for them to further expand their networks beyond their home countries.
