A big part of our mission to empower Filipinos through entrepreneurship is directed towards women in society. For the past 10 years, we have been honoring and recognizing successful and inspiring Filipina entrepreneurs through our annual Filipina Entrepreneurship Summit, or FES.

FES is the platform we use to showcase creative business ideas, innovative business models, and well-thought-out business strategies made by women entrepreneurs who have led their respective enterprises with grit and passion.

Looking back on those years, I was reminded of how many women entrepreneurs have been honored by Go Negosyo. More than 100 Pinays have been recognized as Inspiring Filipina Entrepreneurs and over 300 women have been part of the program and have shared their entrepreneurial journey with thousands of participants.

More than the women awardees, panelists and speakers, imagine the number of participants in the audience who have been touched and encouraged to pursue their goals. Every year, we are averaging 5,000 delegates, who are all ears during the summit.

As we celebrate its 10th run this year, let me share with you some highlights of past Filipina Entrepreneurship Summits.
