The City of Calapan is the first and only city in the two Mindoro provinces, and the second in MIMAROPA region. Since thousands of vehicles pass through the roads of the city, it is then exposed to the many potentials of a port town where goods, passengers and cargo pass through almost round the clock.
On its 23rd leg, Mentor Me on Wheels has found its way at the Event Center of Nuciti Central Mall Calapan City last July 22, 2019 and served more than 300 mentees aspiring and existing entrepreneur mentees.
Rey Lapid, President & Founder of R. Lapid’s Chicharon & Barbecue, represented Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo Founder Joey Concepcion and inspired the crowd with the story of his entrepreneurship journey with R. Lapid’s by highlighting the importance of being observant and creative, and resourceful. He was joined by more than 20 mentors who have imparted their expertise throughout the session.
Dir. Joel Valera, Regional Director of DTI Region 4B, and Dir. Arnel Hutalla, Provincial Director of Region 4B, also graced the program and gave their welcome messages to the mentees who have gathered from different cities of Oriental Mindoro.
“With the right mindset and level of creativity and innovation, most of you will shine and persevere in the business community. The government, with the help of DTI, Go Negosyo and the private sector, will be here to mentor you especially in areas on how to use and source money to grow your business and on how to reach more markets for your products and services.” PA Joey Concepcion.
