Bakit walang pinoy young billionaire na katulad ni Mark Zuckerberg?

emoticonsemoticons Member PExer
Akala ko kasi magaling tayong mga pinoy sa programming. Marami din naman magaling na hackers pati na rin virus makers (ref. i love you virus, lol).

Bakit wala pa tayong innovative na technology na competitive globally?

Di lang limited to websites, pwede rin electric cars, biotechnology, pharma, healthcare IT, mga ganun!

Saan na ang ating entrepreneurship skill? Hanggang skilled employee lang ba tayo?

I am aware meron nga naman (locally nga lang), pero yung very well-known talaga at naging billionaire because of it.

    You need investors to back you up. Without them it's hard to start your own company.
    It takes money to make money.
    Be water my friend. LOL

    Kelangan mo ng koneksyon, venture capitalists at initial investors. Yung mga tipong maniniwala sa iyo kahit wala kang college diploma (Wala nito sa Pinas, lalung lalo na yung diploma part). At tamang timing din kasi pag produkto mo ay di hinihingi ng panahon, magiging one of the many to at di magsstandout.........

    Bonus yung maging Jewish ka. Kasi Jews maraming $$$$$.....

    yung nalalaman ko kasing pinoy entrepreneurship na patok sa ibang bansa - sa clothing o fashion, mga interior o kaya industrial design na medyo niche field na di talaga pang--masa!!!

    Parang lagging tayo sa technology field, ano? Which is kind of ironic dahil karamihan sa tech companies nandito naman sa atin (manufacturing nga lang at support center), at karamihan din sa issued H-1B visa for tech workers mga pinoy. So, sa dami-dami nila, wala bang Mark Zuckerberg diyan?

    I don't think mas less intelligent ang pinoy techies. Maraming magaling, di nga lang siguro risk taker. Kasi talagang to have successful startup kailangan ng sacrifices in terms of not having income yet in the first few months or even years.

    Nagko-contribute siguro din na pagkatapos ng college, meron kaagad instant "dependents" ang ating mga professional workers. So, wala talagang time and money for business pursuits.

    At tama din na wala rin naman tayong mga angel investors na willing magfinance ng mga start-ups.

    How about our top universities, UP or Ateneo or La Salle? Can't they fund their own students?

    Kasi diba yung GOOGLE FOUNDERS supported talaga ng STANFORD UNIVERSITY kaya nga naging successful sila? At marami din namang business na nagsimula mismo sa UNIVERSITY. Minsan nga PROFESSORS ang founder ng isang business. If walang support sa sa isang institutional investor or fund, pwede naman public domain ang umako ng responsibility.

    Even the government can give grants or loans to support entrepreneurship!

    agree ako sa risk takers. kaya siguro patok sa mga venture capitalists at angel investors ang mga taong sinasakripisyo ang studies nila, tinatapon ang chance para magdiploma para "ibahin ang mundo" at tumutok sa brainchild project nila kasi iyon ang major sign ng risk taking. mark zuckerberg, bill gates, jobs/woz, ellison of oracle. mga dropouts yan na naging billionaire sa tech field. risk takers. si woz, sinacrifice ang 9-5 job na sure na kita nya sa HP (yata) para tumutok sa Apple (initial years). etc etc. mga adventurous mag-isip. siguro driven by fame ang mga yan at bonus na lang ang kitang pera. syempre pag ang product mo sikat, mabili.

    sa pinas, generally wala kang mapupuntahan pag drop out ka. pag graduate ka naman, pang 9-5 job ka with the steady promotion pero di pa rin sa yo business at di pumapalo ng billions sa bank account mo. may mga chumachambang millionaires siguro pero di kasing intense ng mga puti.

    pwede guerilla entrepreneurship. madali na lang to sa net. isip ka ng catchy name para sa app mo. targetin mo ang pinakapatok na platform ngayon (mobile apps). magisip ka ng app na di pa sikat sa region mo. (localized target). pag may buzz na locally yung app mo, kakalat na yan at yung street cred nito maririnig sa net. tas launch ka na sa ibang lugar.

    at kung yung technology na gamit sa app mo eh orig, baka bilhin ni Marissa Meyer yan, na mahilig magshopping ng start ups. at kung nangyari yan, whalla, milyonaryo ka na po.

    Not only risk takers but the US economy is conducive to $$$.

    Here in the US if you've got a bit of smarts and willingness you could make profit just about anything.

    Just watch the shows in cable today, they'd go to junk yards and or storage, they buy junk either fix it or scrap it for profit.

    Also the US financial system is conducive to making profit and smooth capital flow; if you want to ship something there's the USPS and 2-3 other major shipping companies.

    If say you're good at making bracelets, you could make a site (or sign up at various free sites like hell even Craigslist), use Paypal, go to Costco to buy wholesale boxes, and get cheap shipping by USPS. With a few hundred dollars (or a typical credit card with a median limit) you could make a side business. Not guaranteeing it's gonna be successful but you can see the ease.

    I know someone here who's gonna go full time with her own dog babysitting company. You can just make just about any stupid a$$ mundane thing and sell it.

    In the Philippines the only thing that's great about entrepreneurial process is the lack of govt. oversight (taxes and regulation). But in terms of infrastructure to buy and sell commodities it's pretty bare. Banking is limited to higher capital ventures (the small shop owners almost always turn to loan sharks for finance), transactions are always in cash.

    And it doesn't hurt that there's a good size middle class with some dispensable cash,

    I Doubt It's Filipino's Lack of Intelligence or Drive aka It's the System

    you will need money. you need investors or VC's for your start-up.

    the likes of Zuckerberg? he got his money from one of those Napster founders, and both were going around talking to corporate heads to invest in their company.

    Yahoo used to be some website designed to connect college students at Stanford in a form of Craigslist-type. students have something to sell or looking for something, whatever. from then it evolved into something different. heck Facebook wasn't even a social networking site back then. even Google used to be a thesis project at Stanford, before it become a big company known today.

    wanna build your own start-up and become someone famous like Zuckerberg? it ain't easy.

    95% of start-ups fail.

    it's not cakewalk.

    let's say me and F-A soldier decided to build our own start-up. F-A has medical background, and then I got engineering background. we somehow have this product that will revolutionize the medical and science industry. we designed a gel substance that will enhance the detection of cancer. so F-A and I decided to go around look for investors for our tiny start-up. the problem? well most VC's decided not to invest in our small company? why? cause our product doesn't have any patent at all. so I decided to file a patent for our gel product. now the problem here is that it took more than 7 years before our patent got approved. 7 years is way too long, we closed our start-up on first 4 or 5 years, coz we can't get a product out there. VC's don't just give out money like it used to.

    Paano ka maging risk taker if kailangan mo kaagad bawiin ang ginastos ng magulang mo sa pag-aaral sa kolehiyo?

    Besides, it's socially frowned upon if you didn't finish a college degree. Parang qualification din yan to enter a certain social circle. The name of your university is part of your identity. Importante kaya sa atin ang social reputation.

    This explains kung bakit yung mga anak ng artista pinapatapos muna nila ng kolehiyo bago ipasok sa showbiz para sabihing matalino o kaya may class. Kasi kung tutuusin, mas malaking chance na sumikat at mapanatili ang pagsikat kung bata pa lang nasa showbiz na.

    We place kasi a really high value sa formal education. Pagkatapos niyan, you are free to explore your interest which kung nasa 20s ka na, may not be the right time kasi- by mid20s naman you are expected to start thinking of starting a family..hehehehe

    I thought, Mark Zuckerberg, didn't make any money when he started Facebook. He didn't even say, "I want to make money" let me create facebook. All he desired for was to make some sense in life. He wanted to make meaning and today he is making money.

    Interesting...Isa nga yan sa malaking difference sa isang pinoy mentality at western mentality.

    Kasi mas nauna yung enthusiam ng mga western entrepreneurs sa kanilang product or service dahil talagang passion nila yan. Afterthought na lang yung pera.

    Sa isang typical filipino naman, parang mas nauna yung potential financial gain na makukuha sa pinapasukang venture. Kinokopya na lang kung anong patok.

    In short, mas sigurista tayo. We don't do or act on anything unless we can profit from it. :lol:

    may naisip ko, gumawa ng street view map (lalo na sa mga provinces) at ibenta sa Google. Mas cost effective naman kung may local agency na gagawa ng picture taking kaysa sa sariling google car nila i-ta-transport pa sa Pilipinas. Maki-partnership na lang at akuin ang responsibility na i-update ang database!

    So you're saying there aren't Filipinos who'd like to make money doing what they enjoy? I doubt that.

    It's the system: Mark Zuckerberg (father a dentist) and Bill Gates (father a millionaire) came from well off families who had opportunities and access to technologies and education at a young age and people who didn't have to make sure they had food on the table.

    This 'sigurista' attitude isn't borne out of culture, rather than necessity (if it is the 'segurista' culture).

    I think you guys blame 'culture' so much.

    It's the system where money flows and wealth is created easier,

    Underestimation

    kung may suporta man ang gobyerno ay yun ay para sa mga caregivers, welders, yaya and yayo's sa loob at labas ng bansa, honestly marami rin naman sa atin ang magagaling kaso iba lang talaga ang thinking nating mga Pilipino mas nauuna talaga ang mga bagay na magpapakasaya sa atin hindi yun mga bagay na minsang magpapahubog sa atin kaya't mas nauuwi pa rin tayo sa pagiging skilled workers kesa sa maging business minded tulad ng ibang bansa!!
