I left Manila to see if there was a market for my SMS appliance product. I had to take a job so I can stay and have time to study the market. After working in Singapore for 2 1/2 years, I finally realized that it was the right time to go home. I still have this feeling of competing in the global scene and make my country proud so I looked for opportunities to come back. On the course of doing this, I met Allan, President and CEO of Ideyatech. When we first met, I just told him about my SMS appliance product, on how he can integrate it to Ideyatech’s existing applications.
After maybe 4 months, Allan told me that he needed someone who can help him with one of his big projects. I can’t remember how he came up asking me if I could help. After a few conversations about what needs to be done and how hard it is to look for senior guys in Manila, I expressed my intent of thinking about the offer. Since I was also considering of going back and do business, I thought about it. It took me maybe a month to decide.
I arrived with my bags packed in the Centennial Airport(NAIA Terminal 2) on May 21, 2008. Eager to meet my new team, I went to work the following day. It’s nice to be back, I told myself.
Let me share a photo of our team in our board room which I took. This is the team that will lead us to success and grow the company. Who knows we might be the next Google! 😉
