“Go Negosyo has been an active supporter of women entrepreneurs for 15 years now. We believe that supporting Filipina entrepreneurs with the right access to mentorship, money, and market is key to achieve inclusive prosperity,” said Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo founder Joey Concepcion.
MMOW is a FREE 1-on-1 nationwide mentorship session for aspiring and existing entrepreneurs. This mentorship event focuses on four entrepreneurial topics, namely: (a) Mind-setting and Marketing, (b) Access to Markets, (c) Financial Assistance, and (d) Accounting & Taxation.
Entrepreneurial mind-setting introduces MSEs to the core foundational values that a good entrepreneur must possess. Marketing bears crash courses on marketing strategies and branding, among others, to help MSEs build a competitive advantage in business.
Access to markets allows entrepreneurs to explore different channels, such as brick and mortar systems (physical store) and digital platforms (e-commerce), which can enable them to reach a broader range of audiences.
Financial assistance informs mentees of the available financial resources and benefits of managing an investment portfolio and applying for a business loan. Finally, accounting and taxation provide the fundamentals of financial statements as well as tax concepts and principles relevant to the identified business.
MMOW WOMEN will also be launched in connection with Go Negosyo’s upcoming WOMEN 2020 Entrepreneurship Summit: Perspectives of a Global Woman of Impact. WOMEN 2020 is anticipated to be the biggest and most inclusive women negosyo summit of the year, gathering the most distinguished women personalities from around the country and the ASEAN to tackle women empowerment through entrepreneurship. It will be held on March 3 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City.
