Joshua De La Llana, the co-founder and CEO of Tactiles, is a graduate of Mapua Institute of Technology (BS Electrical Engineering) and a licensed engineer.
Before starting Tactiles, he was working as a Field Engineer for a notable engineering company called National Instruments that manufactures engineering instruments for colleges and universities in the Philippines. He was in charge of the academic sector.
In that profession, Joshua observed that there was a demand for a certain product that people kept asking for. So, this Magna Cum Laude (Yup, he graduated Magna Cum Laude) decided to create this tool that everyone wanted.
On January 2014, Joshua left his job and pursued a new challenging journey in his life. The timing was perfect as IdeaSpace Foundation, Inc. launched its annual competition. He and his team eventually joined and brought their idea for IQube. From the application phase, down to the Top 20 and then to the Top 10, they were one of the winners of the competition.
Tactiles released a crowdfunding campaign for IQube in Indiegogo on November 2015 and has now raised $60, 000 which is more than what they expected. Right now, their product is getting attraction and also getting orders from schools in different countries just like Auckland University in New Zealand. By June 2016, they will start delivering their manufactured products to their customers.
