Rappler Talk: Inspiring the Filipino innovator
MANILA, Philippines – Rappler talks to Kai Elmer Sotto, a Filipino who worked for tech giants Facebook and Instagram. In his LinkedIn profile, Sotto says he left Instagram in December "to pursue interests in social enterprises."
Among Sotto's inspirations is friend and mentor Dado Banatao, a Filipino engineer who invented the microchip found in every computing machine in the planet. Wanting to encourage other Filipinos, Sotto produced a film based on Banatao's life. It tells the story of Banatao as a farmer's son in Cagayan to his rise as a Silicon Valley superstar.
Together, Banatao and Sotto run the PhilDev Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the Filipino. How does the foundation do it? Watch it here. – Rappler.com
