The ASEAN Mentorship for Entrepreneurs Network (AMEN) wants to leave no one behind, no nation behind
The most awaited ASEAN Business and Investment Summit kicked off yesterday, November 12, 2017, with the launch of a first-of-its-kind mentorship program that will see hundreds of academicians, entrepreneurs and business practitioners from the ASEAN region mentor micro and small enterprises (MSMEs). At this time, there are 143 pioneer mentors with the Philippines having over 50 pioneer mentors.
The ASEAN Mentorship for Entrepreneurs Network (AMEN) is a flagship program of the ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ASEAN BAC) and was conceptualized under the Philippines’ ASEAN BAC chairmanship headed by Jose Maria Concepcion III. The program, which grew from a Go Negosyo initiative to an ASEAN one, aims to empower MSMEs by providing them greater opportunities locally and within the ASEAN region.
