ISIP Launches Social Impact Accelerator Roadshows in Key Cities in the Philippines
By Adriel Nisperos
To attract more social enterprises (SE) to join the Batch 2 applications for the Social Impact Accelerator, ISIP kickstarted the Social Impact Accelerator Roadshows in key regions in the Philippines this June.
The first Roadshow was launched in Baguio City where participants coming from the city’s academe and local social entrepreneurship community attended the event. Kevin Arboleda of Taxumo, the guest SE founder from Batch 1, shared how their SE further grew and developed through the accelerator program.
Following the Baguio Roadshow was ISIP’s visits in Cebu City, BGC, Davao City, Iloilo City, and Quezon City where other SE founders from the inaugural batch were also featured to share their firsthand experience in the accelerator and the lessons they learned from their respective mentors and from the capacity-building sessions.
To date, more than 200 participants in total have attended the roadshows. In a survey, Kate Gutierrez, a roadshow participant from Davao City, shared that going to the event increased her awareness about ISIP and its goals.
The applications for the Social Impact Accelerator Batch 2 close on July 15. If you’re a social enterprise looking to grow your business and scale up your social impact, join us.
The Social Impact Accelerator is one of the strategies of the ISIP, a three-year project co-implemented by the UNDP Philippines and PhilDev Foundation, with generous support from the Australian Embassy in the Philippines.
