Indiepreneurs urged: Join master classes leading to OCEAN summit
INDIEPRENEURS or early-stage ventures with disruptive ideas were encouraged to take advantage of a series of classes on varied topics that include business fundamentals.
These classes, which are scheduled on July 27, will lead to the holding of the OCEAN (Open Collaboration with East Asian Networks) Summit on November.
According to Winston Damarillo, co-chair of OCEAN18, and founder and CEO of Amihan Global Strategies, the “master classes” will be designed for those indiepreneurs working in the six high-impact sectors they have identified namely: creative economy, education, food, global Filipino engagement, healthcare, and tourism.
“We use the term indiepreneurs to highlight that these entrepreneurs and enterprises are independent but have the potential to scale up tremendously and shake up their sectors,” he said.
The series of master classes will be held in different cities, starting in Cebu and followed by Iloilo, Davao, and Manila.
In Cebu, it will be held at the Crimson Resort and Spa in Mactan this Friday.
During these master classes, these indiepreneurs will be learning key business fundamentals with Damarillo who is also a World Economic Forum (WEF) Young Global Leader; design thinking techniques with Niña Terol of Kick Fire Kitchen; and the essentials of effective pitching with Richard “D-cal” Dacalos of Upstart the Game.
To end the day, the indiepreneurs will be participating in a round of benchmark pitches to gauge what they learned during the master class.
Following the other master classes in other cities, OCEAN18 will be back in Cebu for the OCEAN18 Summit on November 9 and 10.
The OCEAN started in 2014 and is held every two years.
