Go Negosyo, for the past 10 years, has placed greater focus in helping Filipina entrepreneurs improve their lives. Usually, many micro and small enterprises are home-based thus managed by many mothers. Mompreneurs, as we call them, are also the largest borrowers from microfinance institutions. These small businesses are often direct selling, sari-sari stores and retail of home-made products in wet markets. Many are into agribusiness, covering poultry, fishery and other farm-related businesses. They need the greatest help in terms of managing their humble businesses. That is why we invite them to participate in our summits and receive mentorships from the many experienced entrepreneurs who are eager to share tips and tricks from their own entrepreneurial stories. Through this, they can graduate from being micro and small and level up into medium enterprises.
This is also the reason why Go Negosyo continues to empower Filipina entrepreneurs through our Filipina Entrepreneurship Summit. For the past seven years of this summit, we have invited countless of Filipina entrepreneurs who are willing to help mompreneurs and give them mentoring. One of the successful Filipina entrepreneurs we have always invited is Alice Eduardo of Sta. Elena Construction and Development Corporation. She is the co-chair of this Filipina Summit.
One can never imagine that the company she leads is involved in construction of high-rise buildings and other plants, harbours and factories. Many will say that it is a man’s industry but for Alice, she proved it all wrong. Before Sta. Elena is established, she is part of the family business. But passion will always push one to pursue a different field. Alice have always wanted to be an engineer that is why when the opportunity came that one company asked her to supply materials for their construction, she grabbed it and used it as a stepping stone.
A woman with a heart of gold, Alice supports several advocacies including Go Negosyo. She believes in our advocacy that through entrepreneurship, people can level up in their lives and slowly, the country can eradicate poverty.
Aside from Alice, we also have several Filipina personalities who will share their insights on March 6, 2015 including Sen. Cynthia Villar, Cong. Leni Robredo, Tessie Sy-Coson and Kris Aquino. Kris, who is an entrepreneur herself, will be leading a forum in the morning program.
Aside from them, we also have other invited power speakers for the full-packed program. Here are some of them:
