The Department of Trade and Industry, in partnership with the Canadian Executive Service Organization (CESO), launched the Building Enterprises through Advisory and Mentoring Services (BEAMS) Project in General Trias, Cavite on 31 August 2017. Cavite is the second province in CALABARZON to kick off BEAMS this year after Quezon.
The BEAMS project is an offshoot of the CESO’s conduct of training and workshop in the CALABARZON region. It is anchored on the Bayanihan spirit by establishing a pool of home-grown mentors and coaches in each province of the region. The BEAMS project envisions to have home-grown volunteer mentors nurturing the micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) for global competitiveness.

It is funded by the Canadian Government- Global Affairs Canada.
“BEAMS will provide one-on-one mentoring services to each Shared Service Facility cooperator and MSME for their growth and improvement,” said DTI Cavite Director Noly D. Guevara.
The universities and colleges like the National College of Science and Technology-Dasmarinas, De La Salle University- Dasmarinas, and Imus Institute of Science and Technology and partner agencies such as the Department of Science and Technology, Provincial Cooperative, Livelihood, and Entrepreneurial Development Office-Cavite, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry-Cavite, and Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants vowed to give their full support and commitment to the program.
