People behind the company: Carlo “KC” Macapagal, 24, the owner and franchiser of Ink & Prints.
What the company does: Ink & Prints a printer-ink refilling shop that now has a total of 17 branches—eight franchised and seven company-owned—within and south of Metro Manila.
When they started: Macapagal started his business in 2006, with just P30,000 as initial capital.
How did it grow?: To get started, the young entrepreneur made do with just one computer, one printer, a borrowed rack, and only himself as store staff. After a year in the business, he discovered something about the ink-refilling and digital printing business that many didn’t know yet: that it was possible to sell the products and services at a much cheaper price and still make a profit.
