A year ago, our CEO Harris Guevarra was chosen as one of the fellows in the Westerwelle Young Founders Programme for Spring 2018. The foundation selected 23 young entrepreneurs from around the globe (out of 1,000+ applicants) who they believe can be agents of positive change in the world. For 12 months, he had complete access to all Westerwelle-sponsored seminars, events, and reference materials on entrepreneurship, investment, business management, etc.
With the grant officially ending this month, Harris was grateful for all the lessons he learned. He hopes that he was able to share valuable thoughts to fellow entrepreneurs on managing businesses from the ground up in a developing country like the Philippines.
Harris shares key takeaways from his experience as a Westerwelle fellow here.
Here are some of the photos taken from the series of workshops for the Young Founders taken in Berlin last year.
