YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAM (YEP) NCR 2021
About this Event
The Youth Entrepreneurship Program (YEP) to be conducted in the National Capital Region (NCR) will draw on a holistic approach on E-Commerce as not just income and job- generation focused, but as a catalyst for sustainable development and economic growth.
Through this program, the youth will be empowered and steered towards becoming the pioneers of E-Commerce, putting emphasis on the social and environmental responsibilities that go hand-in-hand with entrepreneurship.
With the recent detrimental events happening to the global economic landscape due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, which pressures businesses to shift to online means of transaction, the YEP would definitely contribute to the strengthening of E-Commerce initiatives. Other pertinent existing issues such as consumerism and its adverse implications to the environment cannot be entirely eradicated at the soonest. One of the possible means to mitigate this is by initiating and enabling a new wave of entrepreneurs to put social and environmental issues at the top of their priorities while engaging in E-Commerce.
