Innovation for Social and Economic Development


Meaningful Changes through Technology


Despite the many challenges facing our nation, we remain optimistic and dedicated towards the sustainable and inclusive development of the nation. With strength in numbers, like-minded individuals and progress-driven organizations have banded together to form the Society of Impact Technology United for the Philippines (SIT-UP) whose function will be based on a cooperative platform to launch and support “smart” programs by government, organizations and cities.

With new technologies that are reshaping the modern world, there are new and “smarter” ways to do things. We’re here to instill a culture of innovation-driven economic growth for the benefit of all.


SIT-UP is dedicated to support and help shape Philippine businesses, local governments and cities in developing innovative solutions to meet the long-term goals of sustainability, economic growth and help improve people’s lives.

Our alliance network promote peer-to-peer learning and help foster innovation between our members and their key partners such as local government, cities and regional groups.

Going beyond visions and discussions, our impact thinking and impact action focuses on innovative and yet practical ways to overcome challenges through a feasible solutions framework.

In order to drive our message and actions, our organization aims to continuously attract new members, new project partners and secure more long-term alliances with administrators, solutions providers and organizations dedicated towards progress.

Modern challenges call for smart and yet practical solutions, be it step by step program. We believe that small steps are the key to a bright future and we invite you to join in our journey. Together, we can achieve our vision of a sustainable, economically progressive and inclusive nation.
