“At the heart of this project is the convenience of millions of Filipinos, tourists, students, and the hardworking Pinoys who go home to their families by sea just to be reunited,” said Arnold Castro, a Speedy Ticket Venture Builder.
“For the longest time, inter-island travel in our country has been lagging digitally. Positively looking into the future, in a post-pandemic world, we would be an additional booster to the country’s tourism sector as traveling is made easier and convenient,” said Castro.
Speedy Ticket is one of the chosen ideas from the first batch of the 917Ventures Velocity Program, which helps aspiring entrepreneurs build a successful business. It is backed by 917Ventures, a subsidiary of Globe and the largest corporate incubator in the Philippines.
