oneAklan – Want Aklan officially launched during KMME BIP Presentation and Graduation 2018
New Washington, Aklan – July 31, 2018 – Heinz Z. Militar, founder and owner of Selah Studio – Kalibo, a web and mobile app development company, publicly launched oneAklan. oneAklan is a mobile app and e-commerce website showcasing products made in Aklan, campaigning the tagline “Want Aklan”. The platform was created in vision of an accessible online marketplace where Aklanon entrepreneurs would be united as one and market their products to a wider reach. The launch was held as part of the Department of Trade and Industry’s KMME Presentation and Graduation program.
During the launch, Heinz stated, “I have always felt that I wanted to serve the local community, and seeing the world of Aklanon MSMEs through my wife’s family business. I have always believed in the potential of our local products and the possibility of injecting e-commerce into it, and so finally, I registered Selah Studio in DTI as a business entity in December 2017. We started with upscaling of digital marketing for Jocyl’s [Foods] and see how we can replicate it onto other MSMEs until I was asked by DTI to become one of the mentee’s for the KMME (Kapatid Mentor Me Program batch 2). I knew it was God telling me that this was all part of a bigger plan, not for myself, but for our local community. It was in Module 3, when our mentor Sir Clarke Nebrao applauded the idea of oneAklan, and the rest was history”.
