Following the overwhelming success of previous years’ Youth Entrepreneurship Summits, which inspired more than 18,000 aspiring and existing small entrepreneurs, now is definitely the time to bring it to key cities and provinces in the country to reach out to other Filipino youth outside Metro Manila. The Youth Entrepreneurship Summit (YES) Caravan 2012 will gather together the entrepreneurs of tomorrow, as we invite the youth from different high schools and colleges, to reinforce an enterprising spirit in them and to empower them with the relevant entrepreneurship tools. We would also welcome out-of-school youth, young professional and even school administrators to take part in this event.
The whole-day event will feature some of today’s young and other successful entrepreneurs, who will be lending their knowledge in the plenary sessions. We have also lined up some of the most inspirational and motivational speakers to truly spark an interest among the youth to develop a positive mindset and venture into pagnenegosyo.
We have calendared the YES Caravan in the third and fourth quarter of the year to cover all the three major island groups of the Philippines: Luzon (Pangasinan & Quezon Province), Visayas (Cebu), and Mindanao (CDO). As a fitting culmination, the 5th Go Negosyo Youth Entrepreneurship Summit – that will focus on creativity and technology – will happen in Metro Manila on November. Otherwise called us the Youth Technopreneurship Summit, it shall focus on plenary discussions and breakout sessions on the importance of maximizing the social media, technology tools and the creative industry in starting and running a business.
The Go Negosyo YES Caravan 2012 is scheduled to happen in the following areas:
SOUTH LUZON : August 24, South Luzon State University
NORTH LUZON : August 31, University of Pangasinan – PHINMA
VISAYAS : September 21, Sacred Heart College Alumni Association
MINDANAO : October 4, Cagayan de Oro College – PHINMA
Should you or your school or organization be interested in sending delegates to this much anticipated youth entrepreneurship empowerment event, you may get in touch with Go Negosyo through Mr. Rose Peralta or Mr. John Paul Uminga at (02) 6379229. Since there are limited slots available, attendees will be required to pre-register by calling Go Negosyo.
We are also still looking for possible school partners or local government units who could co-present a YES caravan in the other areas of the country. The partner institutions shall take care of the venue, logistics, invitation to and confirmation of attendees, speakers’ honorarium, transportation and accommodation. Express your intent by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
