Discover how inviting celebrities and business experts as speakers falls in line with Globe myBusiness’ advocacy for SMEs.
On August 17, 2018, Globe myBusiness, in partnership with Summit Media‘s Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), kicked off Star Bazaar 2018 — its much awaited star-studded business event for small and medium enterprise owners.
Star Bazaar is more than just a shopping and learning experience for its audience; it’s part of a bigger picture that Globe myBusiness has set its eyes upon for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) across the Philippines.
Globe myBusiness’ mission is to empower entrepreneurs in the SME sector by helping them acquire the knowledge and skills essential in reaching business success. Also, with its line-up of digital solutions, Globe myBusiness is helping business owners maximize the use of technology to make their operations more efficient in every way.
In an interview with Wish 107.5, Alvin Bienvenida, Globe myBusiness Segment Marketing Manager, said Star Bazaar perfectly ties in with this mission. Besides being a platform that showcases celebrity-owned businesses, Star Bazaar also served as a learning opportunity, where SMEs can learn a thing or two about entrepreneurship from experts in the industry.
“We believe in giving entrepreneurs the opportunity to learn from each other and help them get the technology they need through events like Star Bazaar. They can learn from our celebrity guests and get inspiration from their successes,” Alvin said.

We all know Janice for her work in film and television, but what most people miss is her career as an entrepreneur. The Kitchen of Super Janice, which she owns, is among the merchants that were present during Star Bazaar.
Like a dedicated, hands-on business owner, Janice was present in her booth all throughout the day-long event. In an interview with Magic 89.9, she was glad to be part of Star Bazaar, which allowed her to showcase her business.
“It is personally rewarding to be an entrepreneur. I am a chef by trade and I attend bazaars [like Star Bazaar] to showcase what I can do. I think I am fortunate enough to sell what I enjoy making and this is a great opportunity to share it with more people,” Janice said.
For a lot of reasons, many Filipinos struggle with their finances, but only few ask for help. Chinkee Tan, a renowned motivational speaker on business and finance, made it his life’s mission to educate Filipinos on how to properly manage their finances and save.
As one of the speakers during Star Bazaar, Chinkee delivered an inspirational talk on entrepreneurship and how it can change people’s lives. He also mentions that Globe myBusiness is doing great in encouraging more Filipinos to see the endless possibilities of success as an entrepreneur.
“The problem now is people have limited income, but unlimited expenses. In this sense, we have to be more creative in finding another source of income. Globe myBusiness is doing great in this area. They inspire people to become entrepreneurs and create their success,” Chinkee told MOR 101.9 in an interview.
A lot of businesses rely on an effective supply chain, which in itself involves different enterprises working on production and distribution of a particular commodity. Globe myBusiness is dedicated to empowering businesses that play a part in the supply chain, enabling them to improve their processes and effectively reach their objectives.
On the sidelines of Star Bazaar, Anne shared the initiatives that Globe myBusiness has pushed to better serve SMEs in the supply chain. In an interview with Magic 89.9, Anne highlighted digital solutions and technology that businesses in the industry can use.
“Globe myBusiness’ advocacy is to support businesses and take care of them through events like Star Bazaar, so they can succeed. We have product bundles that were carefully crafted to meet the needs of every enterprise,” Anne said.
As part of its commitment to explore innovative avenues towards microfinance and to leverage telecommunications infrastructure and mobile money platform, Mynt also came to Star Bazaar in support of Globe myBusiness’ mission to empower SMEs.
During an interview with Magic 89.9, Ana talked about GCash and how it is helping Star Bazaar’s line of merchants improve customer experience. As a mobile money solution, GCash allows shoppers to fast track their shopping transactions by giving them the option to pay cashless.
“At Globe myBusiness Star Bazaar, GCash came on board to empower celebrity merchants. We equipped each booth with QR codes, which provided hassle-free and secure cashless transactions. This way, we eliminate the need to bring cash and wait for change, thus giving customers a more convenient shopping experience,” Ana shared.
Star Bazaar is only one of the many events that Globe myBusiness is using as a platform to reach more SMEs and educate them on the knowledge, skills, and technology that they can use to transform their businesses into big-time successes!
