BPI Foundation, the social development arm of the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), recently sealed a partnership with Entrego Express Corporation, a technology-driven business solutions provider, to provide logistic solutions to the top social enterprises who will emerge from this year’s implementation of the BPI Sinag business challenge.BPI Sinag, a flagship program of BPI Foundation, aims to empower social entrepreneurs (SEs) in scaling up their businesses and boosting their impact on communities. At the same time, it seeks to grow the triple-bottom-line of people, planet and profit through opportunities for technological, social, and market innovations.Now in its eighth year, the program continues to elevate its mission from delivering capacity-building efforts that aim to develop social enterprises to lead systemic change that will put social entrepreneurship in the mainstream.“Aligned with the BPI group’s commitment to sustainability, we continue to champion our budding local social enterprises,” BPI Foundation Executive Director Owen Cammayo said.“We are delighted to partner with Entrego to empower our Sinag social enterprises in reaching more customers by providing reliable logistic solutions that ensure safe and timely delivery of their products.”For this year’s BPI Sinag business challenge, Entrego is committed to providing service discounts to the Top 25 Sinag finalists. The Top 11 to 25 SEs will receive a one-time discount of 25 percent or a maximum of P600 off, while the Top 10 awardees will receive a 30-percent discount or a maximum of P1,000 off for their first four billings.Entrego will also provide a cash prize of P30,000 for the best performing SE with excellent responsiveness and quality of customer service via the “Entrego Bizkarte Award.”Entrego Express Corporation President Ismael Augusto S. Gozon expressed his excitement to empower the SE community through the partnership with BPI Sinag.”Entrego as the logistic partner of BPI Sinag is sharing its reliable and effective services such as Courier and Express Parcel (CEP) and Freight Forwarding to participating SEs for them to start over again and grow their business,” he said.
