At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have witnessed the resilience of Filipinos by responding to the crisis in a positive way. Several of our kababayans became entrepreneurs showing off their skills in creating unique and amazing food, beverage, accessories and so much more.
As our economy recover from the crisis, SM remains true to its commitment of supporting local communities, including local entrepreneurs, around its malls.
SM City Clark and SM City Pampanga are among the designated locations included in pioneering the Startup Market in the region, a space dedicated to selected micro-small-and-medium entrepreneurs who have the best potential to expand their business ventures.
Startup Market will feature local MSME’s in the community who started selling their products online.
