BPI Sinag caters to entrepreneurs of all ages looking to make a difference. Created to discover, equip, and empower social entrepreneurs who can help uplift Filipino communities, this year’s BPI Sinag will focus on enabling these entrepreneurs to scale-up and expand, so they can further deepen their impact in community development. With this in mind, BPI Sinag Year 3 will go beyond holding an enterprise competition and bootcamp, and move into building a social enterprise ecosystem.

The Sinag Program

The program is composed of three phases: search, learn, and boost. It will open up various opportunities to allow the chosen participants to grow, giving them access to grants, mentorship, and financing.
