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.

4. Joey Concepcion
