The Filipino Inventors Society, Inc. recently celebrated its 79th founding anniversary last October 14, 2022, at The Manila Hotel, City of Manila. The celebration gave emphasis to partnerships and camaraderie between inventors, investors, and the government. It also showcased the ingenuity of Filipino inventors who have made significant contributions to improving the quality of life of the Filipino people through technology.


Speeches were delivered by FIS officials like their incumbent president, Inv. Ronald P. Pagsanhan; their Board of Directors Chairman, Inv. Jon A. Simon; and their incoming president, Inv. William Chua. Also in attendance was the Manila Hotel President and Director, Atty. Jose D. Lina, Jr.; government officials like the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Secretary, Dr. Renato U. Solidum, Jr.; DOST-Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI) Director, Atty. Marion Ivy D. Decena; Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOHL) Deputy Director General, Atty. Teodoro C. Pascua; and many others.


A Memorandum of Understanding between the FIS and the Philippine-American Chamber of Commerce was also signed that night to establish a partnership primarily for investment opportunities benefiting the technologies created by members of the FIS.


Members of the Ateneo Intellectual Property Office (AIPO) were invited to attend this momentous event as honored guests and official partners in preparing and filing documents for IP protection of the inventions upon request of its FIS members, and also in the startup incubation and commercialization of the members’ developed technologies.
