Eco System
#READMORE# The FEN Ecosystem

While we want Filipinos to achieve a larger piece of the economic pie, we also understand they face some significant barriers – a lack of role models, mentors, business advisors, and limited access to capital.  Our solution is to build an eco-system to support their unique needs and maximize their chances for success.

The FEN eco-system will provide access to the best resources through a community of professionals - top lawyers, CPAs, HR people, consultants, successful entrepreneurs, as well as exposure to venture capitalists searching for the most promising startups.  We will educate them on best practices in building a company and how to do impactful business plans.   We may also provide seed funding and act as angel investors to some, and we can also teach them how to pitch to funding sources. We will coach them on how to negotiate their deals and we will provide mentors every step of the way.

Bayanihan (pronounced [bajɐˈnɪhan]) is a Filipino term taken from the word bayan, referring to a nation, town or community. The whole term bayanihan refers to a spirit of communal unity or effort to achieve a particular objective.

A new breed of Filipino entrepreneurs

Culturally, Filipinos are not predisposed to be world-class entrepreneurs, but aim to become professionals -- a lawyer, a doctor, an executive of a multinational corporation, an accountant, a politician – but not an entrepreneur!

In the past decades in the United States, many first generation Filipino-American entrepreneurs set up smaller “Mom and Pop” types of businesses such as retail shops, restaurants, and health care services.  While these businesses can be profitable, the Filipino Entrepreneurs Network wants to encourage a new breed of Filipino entrepreneurs:  one that builds businesses that have the potential to scale to multi-million dollar operations that address global markets.  FEN is an ambitious bid to uplift Filipino entrepreneurs in the USA and in the Philippines.
