CAUAYAN CITY, ISABELA โ€” Adding another accolade to Isabela State University’s (ISU) prestige, the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development Higher Education Institution Readiness for Innovation and Technopreneurship 2.0 (DOST-PCIEERD HEIRIT) hailed DOST ISU Smart City-Technology Business Incubator (DISC-TBI) the Rookie TBI award during the HIHEIRIT PAMORE Commencement Program last December 15, at the Henry Sy Sr. Innovation Center, Miriam College, Quezon City.

One of the requirements for this acclaimed award is the achievement of attaining the highest number of partnerships and implementing tangible processes enclosed by the frameworks of Handholding Starting Incubators from HEIs for readiness towards Innovation and Technopreneurship Preparatory and Acceleration for TBI Managers Optimizing Regional Startup Ecosystem (HIHEIRIT PAMORE) Program.

By reaching this standard, DISC-TBI showcased how TBIs can play a pivotal role in translating innovative ideas into successful startups. The acknowledgment received highlights the impact of TBIs in creating a conducive environment for the growth of technopreneurs.

Notably, DISC-TBI was also honored with two nominations such as: the Philippine Ecosystem Builder Award, and the Outstanding TBI On-Training Award.

DOST also acknowledged ISU’s involvement, as the host university, for its completion of the technology business incubator training program, emphasizing the broader implementation of TBI strategies in educational institutions to foster a culture of innovation.

Under the leadership of DISC-TBI Project Lead Dr. Betchie Aguinaldo, it was one of the three awardees out of the 27 TBIs in the nation.

DISC-TBI embodied the strategies held by DOST by setting an example of how TBIs can contribute to the advancement of innovation, entrepreneurship, and community building.

Aligning itself with ISU’s and DOST’s vision and mission, it takes into heart the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by propelling the region and country into a knowledge-based world economy, and nurturing and supporting innovative techno enterprises through SDG 8 Decent work and Economic growth; SDG 9 Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure; SDG 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities; and SDG 17 Partnerships for the Goals.
