I've always been a strong advocate of self-improvement and youth empowerment, always willing to share my knowledge and experiences with people who want to listen. As such, I'm blessed to be surrounded by like-minded individuals who continue to pursue their goals and passions without thinking twice if there will be an ROI or return of investment - something that eventually becomes present in the long run.

This is also why BPI Foundation's Sinag Program caught my attention. They're also working towards the same thing - to empower social entrepreneurs and support these young businessmen/women. The more I read about their Sinag Program, the more I began to feel like I wanted in on their advocacy.

So what exactly is this program and who is it for? 

If you're an entrepreneur looking to make a difference, you're just the crowd these lovely folks at BPI are looking for. BPI Sinag was created to discover, equip, and empower entrepreneurs who can help uplift the Filipino community. This year, their aim is to help them and their businesses to scale and expand, so they can further extend their impact in community development. Awesome, right?

They're also placing special focus on enterprises that cater to agricultural communities, IP communities, Muslim Mindanao, and other marginalized communities. 

What's in it for you?

Well, if you choose to apply (which you won't regret if you do) and win the pitching competition, you and your team will get access to business boot-camps and in-depth mentoring, a minimum of PHP 100,000 to 500,000 in form of cash grants, and access to industry networks and impact investors.

Feel like this is something you want to have a go at? Good, 'cause they've extended their deadline to July 15, 2017, 12NN so get going and grab your bags. This is one journey you won't want to miss. Visit their website at http://sinag.bpifoundation.org/ to apply and learn more!

Also don't forget to share this with your friends who you feel will benefit from the BPI Sinag Program. Like I always say, there's never enough innovators in the business.
