Concepcion announces that on June 26, its mentorship program, Go Negosyo Mentor ME Online (MMO), is
giving away a total of PHP500,000 to 20 lucky MSME winners (viewers) with PHP25,000 each as
pandagdag-puhunan via online raffle.
“We made it even bigger and extra special. Now we are giving away Php25,000 pesos each to 20 winners
as “pandagdag-puhunan”. For the past two months of the lockdown, we have produced close to 200
episodes already of our online mentorship. Every Friday, we do a raffle for those who watched our
programs, from there, we electronically select 10 winners of 10,000 each. We hope somehow, this will aid
MSMEs who we have been helping for the past 15 years of Go Negosyo,” says Concepcion.
Due to imposed regulations brought about by the pandemic, Go Negosyo had to adapt and maximize its
online platforms to continue serving our MSMEs. It has launched Mentor ME Online sessions on Facebook,
which has catered to more than 1.3 million followers.
Since March 23, 2020, more than 500 Go Negosyo mentors have volunteered to help in the program with
the aim of providing free mentorship and connecting micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) with
industry players during the pandemic. The program has equipped MSMEs with technical knowledge and
business know-how in an interactive Facebook session. The live audience can freely ask questions from the
mentors while lucky viewers chosen through an e-raffle have the chance to receive additional capital to grow
Various business chambers and associations such as the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry,
Federation Of Filipino Chinese Chambers Of Commerce & Industry, Inc., Federation of Indian Chamber of
Commerce of the Philippines Inc., Philippine Franchise Association, Philippine Retail Association, Assoc. of
Filipino Franchisers Inc, among others, also supports the program.
“In the previously held sessions, we’re proud to have featured top Philippine business executives, Go
Negosyo mentors, and celebrities such as Boy Abunda, Aga Muhlach, Dra. Vicky Belo, Richard Yap, Vina
Morales, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, and many more. I believe that through the guidance of our expert mentors
and our programs, we can provide hope and inspiration for our entrepreneurs and that they will be able to
navigate this crisis and safely steer their businesses to greater success,” Concepcion added.
From a daily pool prize of PHP5,000 a day on April 27 to PHP100,000 every Friday, GoNegosyo continues
to level up its support to MSMEs, with a pledge to give away a total of PHP500,000 to 20 lucky viewers esp

business talk provides knowledge and business know-how through an accessible platform that showcases
accomplished individuals who were successful in their respective industries.
A portion of the PHP500,000 pool money will be raffled during the segment with Valdes.
Since 2005, Go Negosyo has advocated for a shift in the Filipino mindset and attitude to achieve prosperity
through entrepreneurship. Addressing poverty is the main objective of its programs, and is anchored on
three key principles – Mentorship, Money, and Market. “We have come a long way. The support of local and
international partners, from both the private and public sectors, has been instrumental,” Concepcion
