      CBM 2023 Entrepreneurship Summit: Future-proofing Cebu's Businesses Through Innovation and Collaboration

      More than a hundred participants gained a renewed sense of inspiration and fresh insights on business trends from a stellar clique of resource speakers who graced the Cebu Business Months (CBM) 2023 Entrepreneurship Summit on August 30–September 1, 2023, at 38 Park Avenue Showroom, Cebu I.T. Park.

      Steered by the theme "Cebu 'Ta Bai: Designing a Strategic, Resilient, and Sustainable Cebu," the CBM 2023 Entrepreneurship Summit organized by the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) became a powerful stronghold for delegates to connect and affirm their shared vision to shape a prosperous business landscape in Cebu through collaboration and innovation.

      "We aim to create an ecosystem where partnerships flourish, and ideas find their perfect collaborators by facilitating connections between entrepreneurs, experts, and industry leaders," said Mr. Charles Kenneth Co., CCCI President, in his opening remarks.

      Mr. John Paul Chongbian, CBM 2023 overall chairman, described the summit as the fitting platform to revisit the basics of commerce — essentially founded on the tenets of business and entrepreneurship — as well as reexamine the purpose of doing business, which is to build a brighter future for the next generation.

      On the Entrepreneurship Summit's first day, the panel addressed food security and sustainability issues. Following the opening ceremonies and the keynote speech was a roundtable discussion that featured "agri-preneurs" who shared their experiences, optimistic views, and business insights on agri-business in the country.

      On the second day of the CBM 2023 Entrepreneurship Summit, exposed delegates to strategies to enhance their businesses through marketing, innovation, and digitization.

      The third day of the CBM 2023 Entrepreneurship Summit started with a spirited roundtable discussion featuring business people and their children who are actively involved in their companies, including Mr. Robert Go, Founder and CEO, and Ms. Rissa Julene Go, Chief Financial Officer, both of the Prince Retail Group of Companies; Arch. Jose Diego Caņizares and Arch. Jose Mari Caņizares of the Canizares Architects Design Company; Mr. Bunny Pages, Chairman and CEO; and John Owen Pages, Executive Vice President, both of the Pages Food Group.

      They tackled the importance of "future-proofing" family businesses for the next generations. They also shared their challenges in communication and succession and strategies to address them.

      The CBM 2023 Entrepreneurship Summit ended positively, giving the engaged delegates a deeper understanding of the mental health issues of and support for workers who, in their ways, would ultimately contribute to Cebu's economic prosperity.
