“Our country needs people like you who can translate ideas into action and see opportunities where other people would see only problems,” Lopez said during his message. “You have come to the right place. The Master in Entrepreneurship Program will hone your leadership skills for more impact, and train you in value creation, scaling, and sustaining your business.”

Christopher P. Monterola, PhD, Head of ASITE, encouraged the cohort. “We need role model entrepreneurs who are intrinsically anchored in innovation, and agile to changing consumer needs and changing policy and landscapes…who are exposed to technology, digitization, digital transformation, AI… we need your kind to be anchored in nation-building and help the world we share and live in to be a better place,” he said.
