You surely have noticed a new title the last time you checked out the magazine stand. Forbes Philippines is now available, with its first issue featuring Alliance Global Group CEO Andrew Tan.
In its premier issue, the new business magazine features stories of businessmen who are making a difference running ventures that are not just profitable but also contributory to the national economy’s growth. Business owners and executives from different local industries also share their stories of success to inspire readers to finally take action and execute the great ideas they have in mind.
To keep the entrepreneurship fire burning, here are the three valuable takeaways from the magazine.
Forbes Philippines’ feature on Susan Grace Rivera, Globe Telecom's human resources head, talks about scarcity of good leaders in the local corporate sector. "Leadership succession directly impacts a company's sustainability. We have so much cash to deploy but not enough leaders to make it happen."
Taking the entrepreneurial journey is a difficult, yet worthy road to take. Getting into a business requires courage, discipline, and tons of patience. For B. Paul Santos, an entrepreneur and managing partner of venture capital firm Wavemaker, it is no walk in the park. "The ability to take big risks and putting yourself out there is an essential experience to be an entrepreneur. You have to engage in authentic dialogue with fellow entrepreneurs to learn new things."
Success and making a difference
National University's story of struggles and success is an example of how businesses are making a difference. The magazine also features Hans Sy—president of SM Prime Holdings Inc. and son of the Philippines' richest man (Henry Sy). He shares insights about building a ‘school of champions’ that excel not just in sports but also in academics.
