M.A.P. launches “EMERGE” to help marginalized entrepreneurs: The Management Association of the Philippines (M.A.P.) launched recently the Educated Marginalized Entrepreneurs Resource Generation Program (EMERGE), which is an Inclusive Growth program focused on job generation. EMERGE seeks to tap leaders (active or retired) of Philippine business, civil society, academe and government who are willing to provide free expert assistance in business management, particularly in the areas that are critical to the profitability and sustainability of the project or business. EMERGE aims to assist the entrepreneurial poor who are high school graduates with technical or vocational training or exposure, the retired government employees, the families of uniformed services and the returning OFWs who would like to go into projects or businesses (Agribusiness, Tourism, Infrastructure, BPO (Business Process Outsourcing), and Food and Beverage) which have big potential for growth and job generation.
