The Negosyo Seminar (NEGOSEM) is a one-day seminar on the how-to’s in entrepreneurship that aim to help micro and small negosyantes become more innovative, strategic and smart. The seminar is an opportunity to learn or revisit key principles in entrepreneurship, from mastering self and the opportunities around to continuously generate relevant innovations; to mastering the enterprise – from set-up, product development and marketing, to finding sources of capital and managing finance.
NegoSem aims to take Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship (PCE) - Go Negosyo’s capacity-building efforts, such as its summits, forums and expos, weekly Negosyo TV show and newspaper column and website and books to the next level; through a more intensive lecture-workshop format that will give its participants a deeper understanding of the core proficiencies in entrepreneurship. This seminar is designed to follow a less theoretical and more practical framework, and to feature distilled learnings from case studies and actual examples to guide any aspiring or existing entrepreneur in setting up and running a business.
The seminar proper will be led by Go Negosyo Angelpreneurs, who are experienced entrepreneurs, seasoned business lecturers, professional speakers, and Go Negosyo mentors, who have the heart to educate and guide existing and budding entrepreneurs in their entrepreneurial journey.
Throughout this one-day seminar, Angelpreneurs will present and discuss the following topics of entrepreneurship:
1. Mastering self through positive and entrepreneurial mindset
2. Spotting and seizing business opportunities and choosing the right market
3. Developing innovative products/services and setting up of business
4. Marketing products/services
5. Business funding and managing finances
Prior to the seminar proper, there will be a forum entitled Tagumpay Mula sa Kahirapan where successful entrepreneurs will share their inspiring stories, especially on how they were able to surpass the various challenges in life and become successful in their businesses.
Negosem participants do not necessarily have to be current business-owners. They can be students, teachers, skilled workers, professionals, housewives, or retirees, etc. What is important is that they are individuals who are interested in starting their own businesses. Ideal number of participants per Negosem ranges from 200-250.
The Negosem is intended to be free of charge to participants since corporations, organizations and individuals shall be invited to sponsor them, making these sponsors the Negosem “benefactors”. It therefore becomes the benefactors’ right to select their intended beneficiaries or “scholars.”
However, it is discretionary upon the benefactor sponsoring the seminar to charge a minimal amount to the participants so that there is some form of equity on their part and to ensure more commitment from participants to finish the course.
