“U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker participated in a roundtable with Philippine entrepreneurs to learn more about the business environment in the Philippines and discuss ways that the Obama Administration can support business creation. The roundtable was hosted by Kickstart, a startup incubator, and IdeaSpace, a non-profit that supports technology entrepreneurs.” (commerce.gov)
I was one of 12 startup entrepreneurs that were invited to meet with Secretary Pritzker for a closed door session where we discussed the Philippines, opportunities, challenges, the US Government’s involvement and what life of an entrepreneur in the region is like. It was a great opportunity and an honour to be chosen to participate.
