As Mekeni Food Corporation goes global, its President Pruds Garcia recently visited the showroom of Superfuture Venture Studio in Doha Qatar. Headed by fellow Capampangan Jennifer Serrano Tungol, Superfuture is a “climate-focused investment firm that invests in  trailblazing startups with the potential to shape the future.”

Amazing displays of clothing, packaging, plasticware, writing instruments and even the Philippines’ Bambike (bamboo bike) can be seen at Superfuture office at Msheireb Downtown Doha.

Superfuture is one of the partners of Cundall, a global, independent, multi-disciplinary consultancy delivering sustainable engineering and design solutions across the built environment.

Tungol, originally from Floridablanca, was once featured in The Gulf Times for green entrepreneurship and sustainability.
