MOA Signing Between DBC and CPU

It has been a significant and exciting journey for DBC as we kickoff the year meeting a lot of partners, volunteers, sponsors, advocates and even critics in our advocacy to improve the collaboration between industry and academe towards educational reform, information access, and abate the effects of job-skill mismatch.

DBC’s advocacy is to address education and job-skill mismatch maximizing on the market enthusiasm for technology especially in real time collaboration and interaction.

MOA Signing Between DBC and ISAT-U

Our first remarkable partnership is with Iloilo Government Industry Academe Council, (IGIAC) Inc., a local consortium formed in 2014 who took on the responsibility of undertaking education reform and become the driver of innovations to address job mismatch, improve career information and research utility in industries.

Because of the dynamic leadership of our president, Mr. Allen Son Tan, DBC expanded its network and tapped the three (3) universities namely University of San Agustin (USA), Central Philippine University (CPU) and Iloilo Science and Technology University (ISAT-U) as academe partners. The support of Iloilo Economic Development Foundation (ILEDF) and Iloilo Business Club (IBC), the two big business organizations in Iloilo, strengthened and intensify our cause to address job and skill mismatch in Iloilo.

Panay Electric Company (PECO) is our first industry partner and followed by the overwhelming response of 30 industry partners who believed and supported DBC’s advocacy.

With these remarkable partnerships we have a strong fight against job and skill mismatch. DBC is leading the way and help us in this fight. Change is now here.
