Philippine Business Investors and Entrepreneurship

I was instructed by the Local Chief Executive to attend a certain “investors’ meeting”. We arrived at 3:20 pm on August 3, 2010 at Asian Institute of Management (AIM) in Paseo de Roxas, Makati to attend a business meeting with Dr. Federico M. Macaranas- AIM Professor (W.SYCIP Graduate School of Business) with his banker guests/investors, an affiliate of Silicon Valley, M. Christina R. Laskowski, and DOST Balik-Scientist Program Awardee Mr. Denny S. Roja, Esq. 

The purpose of the meeting with them is to demonstrate the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) potential of the City of Balanga by presenting its current ICT status. However, the investors are merely looking for young entrepreneurs in the Philippines who have potentials to be leaders of the nation by committing and sharing their own ideas on bio-technology and the likes. This is in line with the Balik Scientist Program of DOST which aims to strengthen scientific and technological human resources of academic, public and private institutions to accelerate the flow of technologies and stimulate the development of new or strategically important technologies vital to national development. 

However, Dr. Shirley K. Chavez, an expert on Information Communication Technology Management of UPLB Information Technology Center extends support to the City by giving ITC Trainings relevant to bio-technology. With me were Engr. George Sorio- Chairman/President of Cybercity and Metro-Clark-Subic ICT Council, Mr. Danny Fong, an investor and alumnus of Dela Salle University and Mr. Geoffrey Loyola- IT Consultant on FAB. The meeting ended at around 5:30 pm on the same day.
