We are proud to honor their passion and perseverance, which have greatly contributed to the country's growth and efforts towards achieving prosperity for all, " Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship, ASEAN BAC PH chair and Go Negosyo founder Joey Concepcion shares.
In addition to addressing the issues and opportunities women can pursue in today’s society, WOMEN 2020 also aims to serve as a platform for the exchange of ideas and the sharing of experiences and best practices on how a woman can set out to become a successful entrepreneur, both locally and globally.
