In partnership with Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Region 7, Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship – Go Negosyo conducted the Mentor Me Negosyo Seminar for Cebuanos last July 15 at the Robinsons Galleria Cebu Atrium, Cebu City.

The one-day program opened by a welcome message delivered by DTI Cebu Provincial Director Ma. Elena Arbon and a motivational message from Merly M. Cruz, Go Negosyo Adviser on MSME Development.

To inspire the Cebuano crowd, local entrepreneurs were invited to share their journey towards success. Rey Calooy shared how he managed to build RNC Marketing from being a mere pharmaceutical company agent to selling dust rags. Engr.

Lastly, Dr. Alvin Roxas told the interesting stories on sustaining a food business thru the family’s Cebu enterprise Yakski Barbecue. The panelists also shared their take on mentorship and how it played a big role as they were starting until eventually expanding their businesses.

Variety of questions ranging from situational to technical were raised during the open forum. Joining the forum was Dr. Eli Tecson, the Business Development Division Chief of DTI Cebu who also introduced the Barangay Micro Business Enterprise (BMBE Law) to the audience. One on one mentoring and coaching session also took place at the venue after the program.

Here are the 8 reasons why you should attend the Go Negosyo 8th Filipina Entrepreneurship Summit on February 18, 2016 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City.

1. Women Entrepreneurs are Taking the Business Industry by Storm

According to a recent study by the MasterCard Worldwide Index of Women’s Advancement, the Philippines is one of only two countries in Asia Pacific with more than 50 female business and government leaders and business owners for every 100 of their male counterparts. This means that more and more Filipino women are now taking the path of entrepreneurship. If you will attend Go Negosyo’s 8th Filipina Entrepreneurship Summit (FES), you will be exposed to different business models and have an opportunity to develop your business acumen through a roster of awesome speakers and panelists.

The Filipina Entrepreneurship Summit has been an annual tradition of Go Negosyo in recognizing our women and their capacity to be catalysts for change and progress. It empowers Filipinas by equipping them with a positive mindset, tools and concepts necessary for them to pursue the path towards success most especially by being entrepreneurial and enterprising.
