Young Entrepreneurs Society

HISTORY

The League of Young Entrepreneurs was first established in 2006 with Jennie Chua-Kao as its first president and Rowena Mae de Jesus, DBM as the Club moderator. At its early stages, the club’s activities were limited to joining business workshops under SIFE (Students in Free Enterprises) such as the 3-day bazaar as required under Practicum 2 along with the Marketing and Business Management majors. Aside from the limited activities and exposures, few number of Entrepreneurship students also proved to be one of the factors some of its activities were not feasible at that time. Moreover, during the time of Patricia Vergara, DBA as club president the number of LYE members started to increase. However, only few avenues where the club can organized entrepreneurial development activities and this is due to lack of outside partnerships and industry exposures.

In year 2012, The League of Young Entrepreneurs was eventually changed to Young Entrepreneurs’ Society.  Mr. Joeffey L. Gomez, MBA the former Entrepreneurship Chairperson facilitated the partnership agreement with Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) which open up opportunities for the members to participate in  seminars on capacity building and DTI sponsored trade fairs. In addition, he also established the Ateneo Entrepreneurship Incubation Hub which is now the avenue for the students to implement their food businesses.

In year 2018 to present YES President Ms. Maricar Boliver and Club Moderator and current Department Chairperson Raymond Sintos, DBM started to organized activities to showcase the innovativeness of its members such as Annual SBG product expositions and “Atin to” Entrrepreneurship Expo. They also continue to invite industry practitioners for skills and competency  workshops and organize educational trips inside and outside the country for benchmarking and product ideation which attracted more students to join the program.
