In hopes of elevating the standards for innovation and technology in the Philippines, the Sinigang Valley Association (SVA) serves as a community for leaders and creatives across different industries to connect and collaborate.
What started on a quiet street in Poblacion, Makati, has grown beyond a neighborhood, and become a movement of like-minded entrepreneurs from all over, with the goal of being a central source of ingenuity and advancement for the Philippines, physical location exempted.
By fostering a diverse group of thought leaders from different industries to work closely together to realize the vision of SVA, the group aims to be able to push for positive changes in the community, which will hopefully inspire and encourage others to be part of the change.
ABOUT SINIGANG VALLEY
(in Filipino cuisine) a soup made with meat, shrimp, or fish and flavored with a sour ingredient such as tamarind or guava. "Sinigang comes from the verb “sigang” meaning “to stew” – therefore, sinigang means “stewed”. It's a flexible, comforting dish that brings together unlikely flavors to create something delicious.
The name puts a Filipino twist on Silicon Valley, the world-famous breeding ground for successful tech companies in San Francisco. It stuck because of its cultural significance and because every Filipino loves an inside joke. Sinigang Valley captures a progressive culture of growth built on diverse influences while remaining uncompromisingly Filipino. That is why, despite the original inspiration, SVA welcomes companies and individuals from all sectors.
LEADING THE TRANSFORMATION
The organization is anchored on three pillars: education, community, and growth. It aims to unite various start-ups, entrepreneurs, and creatives to join forces in the ethos of collective advancement and success. By fostering a diverse group of thought leaders from different industries to work closely together to realize the vision of Sinigang Valley, the group aims to be able to push for positive changes in the community, which will hopefully inspire and encourage others to be part of the change.
The Sinigang Valley Association is an independent organization run by the like-minded entrepreneurs in Metro Manila to foster a community of creative individuals in the hopes of creating a healthy ecosystem for people who are leading the change.
