Barangay Invasion Through Entrepreneurship

The RGMA Network, Inc. and the UP Institute for Small-Scale Industries inked a partnership to deliver a two-hour seminar every Saturday in selected barangays in Metro Manila and nearby towns. The partnership started in 2016 and is now on its third year of implementation. This partnership is part of the DZBB Super Serbisyo program of the said Network.

This 2018, the Institute has delivered lectures on How to Start and Manage Your Enterprise to 291 participants who have started or are about to start their own enterprises. The seminar is an appreciation and awareness program to promote entrepreneurship. So far, barangays that were reached by this advocacy program were: Krus na Ligas, Sto. Cristo, Pinagsama and Apo, Samson, Quezon City; Brgy. 73, District 2, Caloocan City, Zapote, Las Pinas City, Parang, Marikina, Pinagbuhatan, Pasig, and Potrero, Malabon City. On top of this is the conduct of Negosyo Trabaho Fair (NTF) which is held twice a year and is held in big shopping malls in Metro Manila. This event brings all government agencies, potential employers and employees, training on entrepreneurship and, of late, skills training, all in one roof. The next NTF will be on October 13, 2018 at Sta. Lucia Mall and Cainta Stadium.
