MANILA, Philippines – Rappler’s civic engagement arm, Move PH, is launching XChange – a marketplace for onground and online technologies for learning, interaction, and exchange of goods and ideas.
XChange is a space for technologies and products that are shaping the world. If you want to promote your business or advocacy, or reach partners who can help your venture gain social impact, then this is for you.
Join us and over 270 partners as we launch XChange. Want to be part of future events? Send us an email with a brief introduction of your ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are two ways to be part of XChange – via onground events, and through our e-commerce platform.
Through Rappler’s tech summits and Move.PH’s workshops, we have built a strong network of partners around the country.
Now, XChange will be a permanent fixture at these events. Those who are part of XChange get their own dedicated space to showcase innovative ideas and solutions to problems. As a partner, you can reach the event’s audiences, and network with other organizations as well.
For example, if we’re hosting a Move.PH workshop on disaster risk reduction and management, an XChange partner can set up a booth at this workshop to showcase a new product that can save lives in times of disasters. They can also display their initiatives to help during calamities – offering free parking, relief drives, and so on.
Online, XChange will be an e-commerce platform for your social enterprise. Your products will be sold alongside items from existing partners, as well as Rappler Shop merchandise.
Later on, we will also expand the platform for crowdsourcing and crowdfunding opportunities.
