How did I come up with the idea?

Let’s just say I want the Philippines, my beloved home country, to become the next Silicon Valley in Asia and I do this by helping, teaching, mentoring young students build the required skillset to secure high-paying jobs and a mindset to create their own entrepreneurial story.

I have been abroad for the past decade.
First in Italy 🇮🇹, then in the United States 🇺🇸.

Once, I was walking around Stanford University and I felt this incredible energy flowing through me that symbolized the prominent entrepreneurial vibe and culture of Silicon Valley.

Everybody was developing apps! It’s like the old cliche version of college students starting their bands.

I was deeply inspired by that. I wanted everyone to feel the same energy.

And in my 10 years of being away, I’ve acquired a set of skills, both in tech and design that I leveraged to build myself prestigious job opportunities and a high-paying career.

My background includes becoming an iOS Developer at Apple’s Developer Academy, studying Computer Science in college back in the United States, working for a Silicon Valley tech startup based at Stanford University, having a design work recognized by thousands of people in Paris, and now embarking on the entrepreneurial road myself.

Hikre School is a result of a packaged vision of how I see the future along with my skills, knowledge, experiences I have acquired in my endeavors.

Building an online educational platform is my way of expressing it.


Education has never been so accessible, fun, and online. So, with Hikre School, we’re bringing the best of Silicon Valley by teaching the most valuable and in-demand skills of the decade at the comfort of your home.

Problems and opportunity gap for instance are,

  1. Expensive college or university expenses
  2. Lack of required in-demand skills for a tech-driven world
  3. The ineffective and impractical college teaching methods
  4. Staying at home due to COVID-19

Hikre School is for you, whether you come from a coding or computer science background, or you’re a 12-year-old kid curious to learn about apps, or a young high school graduate just interested in areas such as design and business.

Do I have to pay?

Let’s just say you don’t have to worry about paying unless you have a job or until you get a job.

You won’t pay us until you get paid!

By doing it in such a fashion, we are motivated to do in the best of our ability to give you the best possible experience out of the Hikre School program, community, and resources.
