Inspiring more Filipinos to enter entrepreneurship by providing support, Globe myBusiness recently joined forces with the Department of Trade and Industry's (DTI) Negosyo Fair through Globe myBusiness Academy. A free learning session, Globe myBusiness Academy aims to educate emerging entrepreneurs about trends and new solutions that will help them stay competitive in the digital age.

“Filipinos are naturally enterprising, so it comes to no surprise that many are opting to open their own business instead of working in an office. Globe myBusiness Academy aims to guide them in creating a plan for success and to turn their passion into profits,” Derrick Heng, Senior Advisor for Globe myBusiness, said.

Held from June 22 to 24 at the SM Mega Trade Hall, DTI's Negosyo Fair featured an exhibit and discussions on different franchising opportunities and business ventures with low capital requirements.

Globe's myBusiness Academy learning session gathered industry experts who discussed topics on operational efficiency, customer service, and market expansion.

Favis, Account Manager for the Public Sector of Mynt, a FinTech startup wholly-owned by Globe Telecom; and Mejcris Lavarias, Associate Director of AdSpark Local, a Globe subsidiary providing digital and mobile marketing services; and Globe myBusiness Head of Managed Service Grace Anduiza.
