THE Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) recently partnered with the Bulacan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) in mentoring new and budding entrepreneurs in Bulacan province.
A mentoring session dubbed as “Mini Me” or “Meaningful Inspirations for Newbiz Made Easy” was hosted by DTI-Bulacan and BCCI to train and provide knowledge to the said newbie entrepreneurs on business.
According to DTI Central Luzon information officer Warren Serrano, the seminar is also is aimed in developing capable micro enterprises in the municipalities through the existing 16 Negosyo Centers in the province of Bulacan.
“Through this program, new micro enterprises (mentees) are provided with mentoring sessions from BCCI members in the entrepreneurial aspects of marketing, financial literacy, product development, and other skills and knowledge that are essential in effectively doing business as well as to prepare new small businesses for risks that come with running a business,” he said.
Aside from the seminar, Serrano said DTI also has the Kapatid Mentor Micro Enterprises (KMME) program which caters to registered micro enterprises which are at least one year in operation and are endorsed by their local government units or business associations for the 10 module mentoring course that is supported by the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship.
