For the past two years, Go Negosyo partners with the British Embassy led by Amb. Asif Ahmad as we share our advocacy to a bigger audience. The British Embassy supports Go Negosyo in its mission to elevate lives of people through entrepreneurship, teaching them the right mindset and knowhow. We have launched several summits and programs, in which we have them as our institutional partner including the Creativity and Innovation Summit 2013, the Global Entrepreneurship Week celebration of 2013 and 2014 and they have also joined us in the launch of our recent program, the Building Enterprising Students of Tomorrow (BEST) Program for outstanding students of the country.
Let me also share with you an unforgettable experience when I was invited by Amb. Ahmad to personally meet the Great Britain’s HRH, Princess Royal or Princess Anne last few weeks ago in a very intimate and small gathering of Filipino entrepreneurs. Despite having a busy schedule for different engagements, she was able to meet social entrepreneurs in the country. In our brief round-table discussion, I have shared with her the efforts of Go Negosyo as an advocacy and the programs we are planning to roll out this year. And in these programs, British Embassy is one of the valued partners.
This year, we will be celebrating again the Global Entrepreneurship Week and with the help of Amb. Ahmad, more programs will be launched for entrepreneurs. In our 3rd year collaboration with British Embassy, we are looking forward to a stronger partnership with them.
