Geeks on a Beach is Back!

The inaugural event last year brought together key people from around the world - investors met founders, newly-formed friendships blossomed into new startups and  the feedback we got - where attendees rated the event a whopping 9.5/10 - clearly sent a message that Geeks On A Beach was a resounding success!

We want to build on that first event and we’re making it bigger and better this year. We’re setting up camp on the shores of Cebu City, the oldest city in the Philippines.The great minds of the tech, design and startup world are once again coming together for two days on August 21 to 22, 2014 to share insights and to build new and wonderful things. Come and join the gathering. You're invited!

CEBU: The Philippines’ Oldest City and a Hub to the World

Set your sights on this historic tourism, trade and tech center

Ah, Cebu, Cebu, Cebu. The island of great lore, the same island that the legendary explorer Ferdinand Magellan found in the early 1500s, to which he fell in love with, but tragically met a worthy adversary and ultimately his death. Oh, the demise!

Cebu's relations with foreigners have since improved and they are now welcomed as true friends. This boom town of the Philippines has the bustle of a new-world cosmopolitan city - home to big name companies and flourishing startups - but also keeps cool with some of the best beaches in the world just a stone's throw away. The culture is rich, the food is sumptuous and the opportunities are aplenty.
