Dingdong Dantes shared his new endeavor during a live chat and virtual round table with Matteo Guidicelli, Nivo Bolzico, Rico Blanco and Drew Arellano.
Fireside live chat was organized by Gorriceta Africa Caution & Saavedra.
Dingdong will be launching a new delivery app called Ding Dong PH. He did not shared any details but he shared what inspired him to start it.
Dong shared that her wife Marian Rivera who has a flower shop business encountered some delivery mishapa like flowers were damaged by the delivery service.
“Doon nagsimula ‘yung idea, at lumawak na lang siya. In the past weeks, after talking with friends who share the same vision and passion, an idea was developed, hence the birth of Doorbell Technologies.” he said.
Dingdong’s new delivery app is named after him.
“This pandemic became a game-changer para sa akin, pati sa bahay namin, pati sa buhay namin.”
“As many people know, this also became an equalizer, it leveled the playing field. Pero it has crushed and damaged some industries; it paved the way for some to flourish.”
“Kung gagawa ako ng isang bagay, gusto ko klaro ang kaniyang social impact… ‘Yung inspiration also behind this is the fact that I have several workmates who lost their jobs in the entertainment industry,” he said.
The riders that Dingdong will hire are those who lost their jobs in the industry because of the pandemic.
“To reveal one part of that old ecosystem. ‘Yung riders na gagamitin natin, ‘yung nawalan ng trabaho dito sa industriya namin.”
Ever since the pandemic has spread Dong and his wife Marian are sprearheading projects to help and aid our kababayand and frontliners.
