Dado wants to give back to our kababayan by establishing PhilDev, which aims to give scholarships and computers to students. Their goal is to start a business, which will hire millions of employees.
Dado knows the hardship and he wants his kababayan to learn success.
“My life shows that a different path is possible,” he added.
Dado’s father is a farmer while his mother is a housekeeper in Malabbac, Iguig, Cagayan Valley.
At young age, his father taught him to study well to have a better life. He graduated from Mapua Institute of Technology and after recognizing that there were no design jobs in the country, he went to the United States and studied at Standford University.
His first company failed but continued for another try by founding another one and the rest is history.
As they say, blessings come to those who look back on where they came from.
Congrats Engineer Dato Banatao and we are all proud of you!
