The Genie Behind It

The Genies behind In-App Commerce

ChatGenie was launched by Ragde Falcis and Nico Nicomedes in 2020, just two weeks before Metro Manila’s first lockdown. With the sudden change in consumer behavior and pandemic protocols, the company was able to offer a tool for businesses to create their own online stores without having any coding experience or separate app downloads.

Ragde Falcis, ChatGenie founder and CEO, has always believed in innovation. An aspiring video game developer, he took up Computer Science in college and ended up teaching it at his alma mater. However, after participating in the first Startup Weekend Manila, he saw the future in startups and promptly resigned from his teaching job to become a full-time entrepreneur. After starting Gorated, a local version of Yelp, he made it a point to learn every aspect of what it is to be a startup. Pivoting from the original web app, Gorated became a software development and consultancy company. Their vision was to use tech to create a solution to boost and support Filipino MSMEs.
