917Ventures creates MSME ecosystem to empower digital transformation
IN the bustling economic environment of the Philippines, your business could be among the 99.59 percent categorized as micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) — the backbone of our national GDP. Support for MSMEs is needed in their technology adoption, digitalization, and automation efforts to enhance productivity and innovation. 917Ventures, the largest venture builder in the Philippines, plays a key role in supporting this through its comprehensive solutions for MSMEs. Its MSME ventures and startups’ mission is to support over 1 million MSMEs in the Philippines in their journey toward digital transformation.
In an email exchange, I engaged with Natasha Bautista, head of Growth and Programs at 917Ventures, to gain deeper insights into their tailored solutions for MSMEs.
