Gear Up for the Future: One Roundtable at a Time

In the heart of Manila, a new dawn awaits for the auto tech and mobility industry. The pace of technological advancements in this sector is nothing short of electric, and to ensure that we are steering in the right direction, collaboration is key.

Enter the Auto Tech & Mobility Startups Roundtable (Roundtable ATM), an event poised to be a game-changer for the industry.

As we stand on the brink of the fourth industrial revolution, it’s imperative that we synchronize our gears, both figuratively and literally. Industries worldwide are swiftly adapting to the whirlwind of technological advancements.

From AI-driven vehicles to innovative mobility solutions that defy traditional transport models, the future seems promising yet daunting. However, to harness the full potential of these advancements, stakeholders need a platform to share, collaborate, and innovate. This roundtable aims to be that very catalyst.


Held at the prestigious Asian Institute of Management-Dado Banatao Incubator, this event serves as the cornerstone for startups, innovators, and industry leaders. The Asian Institute of Management-Dado Banatao Incubator (AIM-DBI) has been at the forefront of fostering innovation and entrepreneurship in the Philippines.

Known for its unparalleled commitment to startup success, it’s no surprise that AIM-DBI has taken up the mantle of facilitating this monumental movement in the auto tech and mobility space.

The recent founding members meeting held at AIM-DBI witnessed these innovators gather to discuss, debate, and devise a blueprint for a more connected and efficient future.

Their discussions were not just about technology but also about the economic, environmental, and societal implications of these advancements. The objective was clear: to cultivate an environment where startups, innovators, and industry giants can collaborate, innovate, and drive the nation forward.


The Roundtable ATM isn’t just another networking event; it’s a vision-casting session. It is the genesis of what is envisioned to be the Auto Tech and Mobility Startups Association of the Philippines. But why is such an association vital?

The auto tech and mobility sectors are uniquely positioned. Their growth is not just representative of technological progress but also holds the potential to impact broader socio-economic dimensions.

Think of improved urban mobility solutions easing daily commutes, or the potential for green vehicles reducing the carbon footprint. These advancements hold the promise to transform cities, lifestyles, and economies. Hence, creating a unified voice in the form of an association can pave the way for collaborative progress, pushing boundaries and setting new industry standards.

Yet, the journey to such an integrated future has its challenges. Startups, despite their innovative ideas, often struggle to find the right market fit or scale their operations.

On the other hand, established industry players might grapple with adapting to rapidly evolving tech trends. This roundtable, themed “Gear Up for the Future,” is all about bridging these gaps. It provides a platform where challenges are not just discussed but solutions are collaboratively built.
