US Embassy, Go Negosyo to empower youth in 2017

The US Embassy in the Philippines and the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship (Go Negosyo) just announced a new round of Youth Entrepreneurship Development Workshops (YEDW) for 2017.

The workshops are part of an ongoing efforts to empower young, aspiring Filipino entrepreneurs by providing tools to develop and build innovative business ideas. These three-day workshops will take place in Luzon and Mindanao, and will include training, networking, and mentorship opportunities with US exchange program alumni and Go Negosyo “angelpreneurs,” who are established entrepreneurs and business professors.

In 2016, nearly 2,000 YEDW alumni, youth, entrepreneurs, and academics joined two YEDW Mentor Me Innovation Forums, held in Manila and Cebu.
