Got a business idea? Join the Fueling The Dream Competition and play a part to sustainable development through planning socially and environmentally significant ventures. Launched by Esquire Financing Inc., it believes that at the center of the national progress is the growth of local businesses and entrepreneurs. Go ahead and create a group of 3-5 students within the same university. Then, create a model canvass that describes the rationale behind how an organization creates, delivers, and captures value. The nature of the business should comply with the Triple Bottom Line: People, Planet, and Profit. Complete all the necessary documents & forms and submit it within the submission period. What's at stake? You get to take home P100,000 cash, up to P1M capital (depending on the valuation of the business), and a feature in Entrepreneur magazine.
