With the theme, “Building Innovative and Inclusive Enterprises,” we are having the 8th Filipina Entrepreneurship Summit on Thursday, Feb. 18. This has been an annual tradition of Go Negosyo to recognize women and their capacity to be catalysts for change and progress. For the past seven years we’ve been holding a summit specially designed to inspire and empower more aspiring Pinays to become entrepreneurs by showcasing inspiring stories of champion Filipina entrepreneurs.

We are also recognizing this year’s Inspiring Filipina Entrepreneurs who are exemplary in their fields of business. Aside from this, here are eight reasons why you should attend the 8th Filipina Entrepreneurship Summit:
