The DOST-ASTI, together with the DOST-TRC, continues to provide business and technical coaching to the resident and virtual incubatees of DOST-PEZA Open TBI. Sixteen (16) resident start-up companies delving in software development, web appliations, embedded systems, network infrastracture management, telematics and technical training, occupied 95% of the facility.
The DOST-PEZA Open TBI also started offering a virtual incubation service. Virtual incubation is for budding business that have established their operations elsewhere but wish to avail of incubation services. It also gives those working from home an alternative locale to conduct their enterprise. Under the virtual incubation, companies are given a workspace to use, in contrast to the 20 and 40 sqm. rooms used by resident incubatees.
