YP Entrepreneurship Event

In partnership with the French Embassy, the Young Professionals Committee organized its first event of the year last Monday, February 15, 2016.

This event was held at the Ambassador’s Residence, in presence of the French Ambassador to the Philippines H.E. Thierry Mathou and 50 guests of the French and Filipino community.

The three guest speakers, Basile Ricard (General Manager Operations of Bolloré Logistics in the Philippines), Geoffroy Morgan de Rivery (CEO of LiveWell) and Nicolas Schweitzer (Co-founder and CEO of Branchless Banking Solutions), were all able to share their story and experience in the Philippines. They each brought forward different aspects of entrepreneurship and shared their ingredients for success, mainly the importance of building your network in the country, the necessity of adapting yourself to the local culture and taking care of your people and finally the opportunity of using existing digital tools to facilitate the development of any start-up.

Guests enjoyed the rest of the evening sharing their own experience and networking with other young professionals and entrepreneurs.

The French Chamber will hold its first Entrepreneurship Committee meeting next Tuesday March 8, 2016 and will be officially launching it this coming April.
