NOV 13 – Cebu IT BPM Organization (CIB.O) president Gregg Victor Gabison has identified information technology (IT) entrepreneurship as one of the sectors that may help make up for a slowdown in the IT-Business Process Management (IT-BPM) sector. Technology startups, Gabison said, can create a window of opportunity that local graduates and outsourcing employees can explore.
Gabison said more startups are gaining ground and more incubation centers are expected to be built. Cebu’s IT-BPM industry has seen signs of resiliency in recent years despite a broader slowdown. Gabison said that while some companies have halted operations in Cebu, there are still new ones coming in.
