Planet NI Program in Philippines

Planet NI India Banner


The mission of the Planet NI program is to empower engineers in emerging countries to achieve sustainable prosperity by providing increased access to NI technology. The program focuses on nurturing local innovation through partnerships, as well as supporting entrepreneurs and organizations building solutions that contribute to the economic development of emerging nations.

NI offices around the world locally define and develop their Planet NI programs. The primary focus of the Planet NI program in Philippines is to support local small and medium enterprises (SMEs), partner with innovation centers, and to support healthy and sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystems, by collaborating with developmental organizations.


Nurturing Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Planet NI Program for Small and Medium Enterprises

Innovative SMEs and startups are key contributors to the socioeconomic development of emerging countries because they generate new and high-value jobs and social value. However, a dynamic entrepreneurial sector depends on many factors including financial support, market expertise, and access to cutting-edge technology - these are especially true at the nascent stage. The Planet NI program helps entrepreneurs in established small businesses and startups increase their access to world-class development tools, technical training, and technology-based markets.

Collaboration with University Ateneo de Manila
Collaboration of Planet NI with University Ateneo
Planet NI Philippines and the University Ateneo de Manila have equipped one of their laboratories with NI ELVIS to provide training to local engineers who are underserved in the community.   The Planet NI team worked with NI manufacturing and Planet NI branches to put the remaining units of NI ELVIS I to good use in communities where there is limited access to NI technology.

The university plans to host a laboratory with partial donated equipment and facilitate access for the underserved in the community. Similar initiatives are underway in Mexico, Brazil, and India and in the planning stages in Indonesia and Vietnam. This project provides access to NI technology to thousands who could not get access through normal sales channels.
