Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Bounce Back Philippines (BBPH), a movement for SME resilience and recovery, will be mounting its first ever face-to-face event where business leaders will gather to learn how to be resilient and rise above challenges beyond the pandemic.

Entitled “Bounce Back PH Summit: Pilipinas Rising!”, the event will be on Nov. 25, 2022 in Maharlika Pilipinas Hotel, Tagaytay City. It will host a panel of successful entrepreneurs who will share their experience, expertise, and stories, and will answer questions from the audience, practice pitching in a fun and engaging environment with other entrepreneurs and investors. It will provide a venue for networking and collaboration.

Bounce Back PH is a phenomenal business community with more than 68,000 members that support and educate thousands of small and medium businesses to help them stay resilient amidst the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 global pandemic. Founded by entrepreneur Jason dela Rosa along with other business and opinion leaders, it is an online movement that aims to support micro, small, and medium-sized entrepreneurs (MSMEs) to overcome whatever crisis that may come through practical education, corporate partnerships, and mentorship.

Since then, it has turned into a catalyst for change. The online movement was also a participant of Meta’s Community Accelerator Program that enables Meta’s Community Leaders to deepen their community’s impact.

“Now that the economy is opening up again, we must now educate business owners on how to recover strategically and how to be prepared for any other challenges that may come,” says dela Rosa.

“Through this summit, we will bring together experts, mentors and business owners in one place where we can all learn, collaborate, but more importantly, inspire each other. Bounce Back PH is committed to be that spark for SME’s for years to come,” he added.

The event will feature key speakers and business mentors such as RJ Ledesma, founder of Mercato Centrale and Easy Franchise, Carlo Sito, founder of SGI, Maria Korina Bertulfo, founder of Filipina Homebased Moms, Mark Gersava of Bambuhay, Jaypee Soliman, Senior Vice President and SME Segment Head of Union Bank of the Philippines, Pocholo Gonzales, influencer-entrepreneur and former voice actor of ABS-CBN, and other inspiring leaders who have helped SMEs over the course of the pandemic.
