USC-KNN Committee Chair Carmen Piramide said this year’s attendees are lean and mean with most of them have the potentials to become successful businessmen.

About 60 participants from various places of Cebu came to learn the business planning lecture by some faculty members of the School of Business and Economics of the USC. A participant from Dalaguete, a town South of Cebu came as early as six in the morning at the venue. Other out-of-town participants also came from the town of Argao.

The whole day seminar includes topics such as Marketing, Operations, Human Resource and Finance. The topics are covering the aspects that are included in the business plan.

The participants are asked to make their own business plan about their intended business and are given a period to submit the plan to the KNN Committee for screening and selection process. Those who are chosen shall be included in the regular season and shall receive seed capital amounting to about P10,000 or any amount to be decided by the committee.

During the entire regular season, the winners or the finalists shall compete against each other by operating and managing their own business with the seed capital and assistance provided by the KNN program. Part of their participation will be their guesting at the radio program over DyAB1512 where they will be introduced to the public. Aside from it, they will be asked to participate in other activities like trade fair and bazaars.

The "Mentoring Session" every last Friday of the month is designed to assist the USC-KNN beneficiaries. Faculty members from the USC-School of Business and Economics provided free consultancy services to the beneficiaries who may refer or ask questions about their business during the session.

At the end of the season in February 2013, a Big Winner shall be declared and shall be given additional seed money. (Learn more about USC-KNN? Visit here.) Like us in Facebook.
