True to its continuing commitment of helping transform the Philippines into an enterprising and entrepreneurial nation, the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship, Inc. – Go Negosyo launched the GO NEGOSYO BUILDING ENTERPRISING STUDENTS FOR TOMORROW (BEST) Program last November 17, 2014 at the Manila Polo Club in Makati City.

For the past nine years, Go Negosyo has been known for its sectoral summits attended by thousands of people from all walks of life.

On its 10th year, Go Negosyo specially designed the Go Negosyo BEST Program, a year-long mentoring that aims to serve as an avenue for academically outstanding college junior and senior students (who may not necessarily be business majors or business-inclined) to connect them to a very good pool of Filipino entrepreneurs and industry leaders and practitioners, and inspire and teach them to be enterprising and entrepreneurial. This will be done through a quarterly activity (four sessions in total) which may include but may not be limited to sessions with heads of corporations, company tours and immersions and teambuilding and personal enrichment activities.

The second session was held last February 28 at the Philippine Trade Training Center in Pasay City featuring young Filipino trailblazers and engaging the delegates further through a teambuilding and group dynamics session facilitated by The Outstanding Students of the Philippines Alumni Community.

As part of Session 2, Go Negosyo BEST PassionProject was launched. PassionProject is one of the learning sessions of the Go Negosyo BEST Program that would allow the delegates to propose, design and roll out a project or a program which aims to address a particular problem/issue or rally a particular advocacy. This will serve as an opportunity for them think and design an innovative program which will contribute for the development of their chosen school or local communities and collaborate with fellow BEST Delegates.
