FREE 1-ON-1 MENTORSHIP TRAVELS TO ILOILO. Go Negosyo and the Department of Trade and Industry’s Mentor ME on Wheels traveled to Iloilo last June 21, 2019, to bring free mentorship for micro and small entrepreneurs. Held in Northpoint Event Centre of SM City Iloilo, the mentorship session catered to more than 400 mentees and gathered more than 50 mentors.

 

Our goal for our 3M’s of entrepreneurship: Mentorship, Money, and Market is to bring it closer to all micro and small entrepreneurs nationwide. We believe that the right mentorship is an important factor in the success of many entrepreneurs. It must be then coupled with the exposure to market and ease of access to financial institutions. With mentors, MSMEs will be guided from the inception, implementation, and achievement of their business’ success.

Last month, we brought our mentorship programs Mentor Me On Wheels and Money Market Encounter to three cities: Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo and Baguio City. These programs are organized in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry. Through these consecutive rollouts, we have served over 1,200 mentees and gathered hundreds of mentors who volunteered their time to provide guidance to our MSMEs.

This is just one way of mobilizing mentorship here in the Philippines. I hope all the ideas shared between mentors and mentees will boost their businesses forward.

More than 40 mentors shared their time and knowledge on entrepreneurial mind-setting and marketing during the 18th rollout of Go Negosyo’s Mentor ME On Wheels at the Event Center of SM Cagayan de Oro Downtown Premier last May 30.
