Growth Con PH: The First-ever Business and Networking Summit by The Business Manual

Growth Con PH, an exclusive event for The Business Manual’s subscribers, is an interactive growth-focused seminar that recognizes the rising stars in the local business landscape.

with over 1 million business enterprises operating in the Philippines—99.58% of which are Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), while only 0.42% are large enterprises—it is evident that the playing field is very competitive. And although anyone can start a business, maintaining and growing it is another thing altogether.

This is why The Business Manual launched Growth Con PH—a subscriber-exclusive seminar and networking event that aims to bring together the country’s business owners, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders in an afternoon of learning and building connections.

“Growth Con PH is an exceptional opportunity for entrepreneurs and business enthusiasts to gather, share insights, and discover new growth opportunities,” The Business Manual’s Editor-in-Chief RJ Ledesma expresses. “We aim to spotlight the accomplishments of our Rising Stars, inspiring business organizations and individuals who have made a significant impact in their respective fields.”

“As the country’s premier online subscription-based business website, we strive to provide a comprehensive platform for business enthusiasts, offering a wealth of knowledge about the world of business, from inspiring success stories to expert insights,” adds Ledesma.
