AFFI Organizes 1st EntrepRUN to Benefit Young Entrepreneurs

It’s been 18 years since the Association of Filipino Franchisers (AFFI Empowering Entrepreneurs™) first began helping the business community reach new customers and investors through exhibits and trade missions, communicate through open dialogues and discussions, participate in business matching, learn to professionalize and improve their processes through AFFI programs, and more. Even now, the organization continues to help emerging and established entrepreneurs improve their businesses.

1st EntrepRUN: A Run for Success

This year, AFFI are celebrating their triumphs as well as continuing with their advocacy to help young entrepreneurs find solid ground within the business, through the 1st EntrepRUN: A Run for Success. This run will stretch all the way from the Cultural Center of the Philippines on Roxas Boulevard to Coastal mall in Parañaque City, a huge event designed to promote entrepreneurship throughout the country.

AFFI calls it “more than a fun run,” saying that the event will showcase various business industries and stakeholders to demonstrate solidarity in advocating entrepreneurship. The run will bring together different trade organizations, local government units, and private corporations, symbolizing how even competitors can run as one in order to promote diversity in the business industry.

The prime movers of the AFFI

The run will be open to all sorts of runners who support AFFI’s goals, whether or not they are entrepreneurs, and it will be held on September 6, 2015, with the program set to begin at 4AM.

Supporting Young Entrepreneurs

Part of AFFI’s goals in organizing this event is to generate funds for their corporate social responsibility program, which aims to help the next generation of young entrepreneurs launch their business concepts. The people at AFFI firmly believe that entrepreneurship contributes toward alleviating poverty and nation-building by way of a more robust economy.

The Race principals

AFFI intends to serve as the mentor to young entrepreneurs as they strive to succeed in the business industry. Some of the proceeds will go to Go Negosyo’s Building Enterprising Students for Tomorrow (BEST) program, which will provide selected students with the seed capital to launch their business concepts.

Proceeds will also go toward AFFI’s Seminars and Business Clinic, which conducts learning events such as Entrepreneurship Seminars that educate the public on how to start a small business. AFFI conducts over 100 of these seminars throughout the year, with the help of seasoned entrepreneurs willing to share their expertise and top tips.

Activities at the EntrepRUN

Running isn’t all you can do at EntrepRUN. The event will feature a festival area, which will showcase partners’ brands and include booths where AFFI partners will be able to share samples of their products or even sell them outright as well as share flyers, brochures, and other information about their businesses.

Following the run are Breakfast Mentoring Sessions, which include four sets of seminars open to the runners, so they can improve their knowledge and be encouraged to set up their own businesses or franchises. The topics include: Right Franchise for You, Franchise Your Business, Entrepreneurship 101, Winning Sales Strategies.

AFFI also supports the balance of business, health, and family through the run. They hope this event will promote a healthy lifestyle among entrepreneurs by giving them the opportunity to literally run great distances for their businesses. Plus, this is a family-friendly event, as 50 fun mascots will be participating in the 3K Kids Run.

The 1st EntrepRUN: A Run for Success will be held on Sunday, September 6. The program starts at 4AM at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
