More than 500 micro-entrepreneurs, both aspiring and existing negosyantes attended the free one-on-one mentoring session. Present during the program were Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo Founder Joey Concepcion; CEO of Alliance Global Inc. Kevin Tan; Senators Sonny Angara and Bam Aquino; CEO of SL Agritech Henry Lim Bon Liong; Chairman of Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry George Barcelon; President and CEO of Richprime Global Myrna Yao; President of Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc.

George Siy; CEO of Uratex Naty Cheng; President of Cellprime Distribution Corp. Eric Yu, among others.
PA Joey Concepcion shared, “The value of the advice that you get is worth more than any amount of money because these advice could take them to the next level of success.”
Moreover, Kevin Tan gave an inspiring message for all mentees. He emphasized three best qualities: passion, humility, and integrity that every entrepreneur must possess. He said, “Your success depends so much on your openness to embrace these values. Find the right balance among these three and you will certainly be on your way to making a difference in whatever endeavor you decide to pursue.”
In his speech, Sen. Bam Aquino highlighted the importance of 3Ms: mentorship, money and market for start-up and micro and small entrepreneurs. “Tuloy-tuloy po ang aming serbisyo upang ang tatlong M ay maabot ng mas maraming Pilipino para mas marami po sa atin ang umangat nang sabay-sabay.”
Additionally, Sen. Sonny Angara also graced the program and expressed his support to the entrepreneurship advocacy of Go Negosyo.
The MMOW program is in line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s vision to capacitate micro-small businesses in boosting the Philippine economy. Through MMOW, mentors are introduced to micro and small entrepreneurs, and offers technical and practical know-how on entrepreneurship through sessions in more convenient and accessible locations.
Go Negosyo in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry aims to bring mentorship closer to every Filipino by conducting FREE mentorship across the nation in the convenience of the MSMEs.
Megaworld is a staunch supporter and a partner of Go Negosyo in serving the MSMEs and has been actively involved in Go Negosyo programs. This leg was made more special as Lucky Chinatown, a Megaworld property, served as the official venue partner of Go Negosyo’s Mentor Me on Wheels.
Watch out for the next MMOW in your local malls!
