                                 Entrepreneurial Asia Overview

       EntrepAsia aims to support young entrepreneurs in their quest to uplift the nation
through innovative entrepreneurship. The program is conducted in cooperation with the
LET’S GO (Leading Entrepreneurs Towards Sensing Global Opportunities) Foundation.

       Under EntrepAsia, a delegation of entrepreneurship students, faculty, and
entrepreneurs will be visiting different Asian countries. They will familiarize themselves
with the intricacies of doing business with each country and establish valuable business
networks that will hopefully lead to successful business ventures.

        This program is in line with Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s 10-
point agenda for economic recovery. EntrepAsia will enable future entrepreneurs to view
Asia as their marketplace, open up their horizons, and give them the opportunity to see
first hand how the entrepreneurs of neighboring countries do business in the midst of
globalization. The exposure will be a valuable learning experience for the delegates as
they create jobs and generate economic activity in their respective communities.

         Each trip will last for an estimated five to six days, wherein the following
activities will be conducted:

               Country Analysis
               Entrepreneur Business Matching
               City Tour
               Networking with AIM Alumni
               Learning how to do business in their country
               Visit to SMEs, manufacturers, and retailers
               Networking with possible suppliers and buyers

        These activities will provide the delegates with relevant and timely information
about each country and the network to strengthen their businesses. This will hopefully
create the impetus to inspire and support our delegates in their journey towards becoming
successful entrepreneurs.

       We hope EntrepAsia will encourage future endeavors that will expose our young
entrepreneurs to their Asian counterparts. It is also the type of fruitful cooperation that we
want to see between the Philippine embassies, the NGOs, the academe, and our
entrepreneurs as a collective effort towards nation building.
