BPI Foundation, the social development arm of the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), recently sealed a partnership with Entrego to provide logistics solutions to the top social enterprises who will emerge from this year’s implementation of the BPI Sinag business challenge.
BPI Sinag, a flagship program of BPI Foundation, aims to empower social entrepreneurs (SEs) in scaling up their businesses and boosting their impact on communities. At the same time, it seeks to grow the triple-bottom-line of people, planet, and profit through opportunities for technological, social, and market innovations.
Now on its eighth year, the program continues to elevate its mission from delivering capacity-building efforts that aim to develop social enterprises to lead systemic change that will put social entrepreneurship in the mainstream.
“Aligned with the BPI group’s commitment to Sustainability, we continue to champion our budding local social enterprises,” said BPI Foundation Executive Director Owen Cammayo. “We are delighted to partner with Entrego to empower our Sinag social enterprises in reaching more customers by providing reliable logistic solutions that ensure safe and timely delivery of their products.”
Entrego’s warehousing, freight forwarding, and last-mile delivery services support entrepreneurs at every step in their supply chain. For this year’s BPI Sinag business challenge, Entrego commits to provide the Top 25 Sinag finalists with special discounts. In addition, Entrego will provide a cash prize of P30,000.00 for the best performing SE with excellent responsiveness and quality of customer service via the “Entrego Bizkarte Award.”
Entrego President Ismael Augusto S. Gozon expressed his excitement to empower the social enterprise community through the partnership with BPI Sinag. “Entrego, as a fast-growing company, keeps on finding opportunities to provide efficient and reliable logistics services to our stakeholders. This partnership with BPI Sinag is a great start for us to show our support and commitment towards boosting the market access capability of SEs in the country. Together with BPI, we will empower SEs to grow their businesses and reach their customers all over the country,” he said.
