I am so grateful to be a volunteer-business plan panelist to the Ateneo School of Government – Leadership and Social Entrepreneurship #ALSE Program Batch 119!
I am very happy and proud of the 21 graduates, who took the path to learning financial literacy, leadership and business planning, to achieve their dreams of building social enterprises and innovations, and contributing to their families, communities and the Philippines’ progress.
I participated as panelist last 29th October 2023, together with Jaime Vega Bautista Jr , Ninalyn Sulit – Cacananta , Mila Punzalan and Ms Nina of OWWA, during the presentation of the business plans of the social enterprises or social innovation projects of participants of the ALSE Program. As a panelist and judge, I helped assess the feasibility of their plans, and give inputs that will make their plans even more successful in the real world. Thank you to Divine, Crystal Gallentes and Nelia Laforteza for inviting me into ALSE.
Once more, I applaud all the great works done by the participants. Congratulations to the graduates of Batch 119! Keep going and growing the POWERinU!
