Hundreds of entrepreneurs, particularly those who own and manage micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) benefitted from a series of masterclasses organized by PLDT Home Biz.
Dubbed Aasenso Ako! Master Series, PLDT Home Biz conducted workshops and forums led by successful Filipino entrepreneurs including the founder of Potato Corner and Tokyo Tempura, Jorge Wieneke, advertising veteran and GoNegosyo mentor Jenny Wieneke, and PLDT Home Biz ambassadors Roxanne Montealegre, Dianne Medina, and Nadia Montenegro. In partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), they taught aspiring and budding entrepreneurs from Pangasinan, Cavite, Boracay, Laguna, and Bulacan how to start and grow their businesses, plan for business continuity, and resilience.
“As a brand that champions digital inclusivity among Filipinos, we also recognize our role in enabling MSMEs’ growth and recovery by ensuring that our services power them to success,” said Patrick Tang, First Vice President and Head of PLDT Home Customer Management. “This year, we celebrate every MSME as we advance our support for their growth and success towards nation-building.”
