Aspiring business owners, CEOs get mentoring boost

New Bold University, the locally inspired version of Silicon Valley-based Singularity University, is set to launch mentoring activities for entrepreneurs, chief executive officers, leaders, and aspiring ones to upscale their operations this 26-27 August.

Qualified mentors, including the 2022 Gen T List Awardee and Serial Entrepreneur Ralph Layco, will lead the mentorship seminar, featuring some of the country’s top minds shaking things up in their respective industries.

Mentors like Steve Sy, the father of Filipino e-Commerce and Great Deals, Avin Ong, the founder, chairman, and CEO of Fredley Group of Companies, and Roland de Ros, founder, and CEO of, the country’s fastest-growing Filipino live-streaming app, will provide some insightful wisdom that can be utilized to fulfill life’s purpose, increase chances of succeeding in life, and fortify people in business against the challenges of the new normal amid the pandemic.

The speakers are thought and tribal leaders who will encourage inquiry, development, and creativity while inspiring others to act kindly.

For two days and a Networking night on the 25th, the New Bold U School for Disrupters will hold live in-person at PETA Theater and stream eight online masterclasses from top CEOs and Founders as mentors, plus five more expert classes to help take businesses to the next level.

This year’s theme is “Disruption,” a phenomenon where incumbent brand leaders get challenged by new ones through a unique proposition that either shakes or changes the industry.

This is what the New Bold U current edition is hoping to convey with their newest edition.

The stage of NBU in PETA is inspired by the TED (technology, entertainment, design) stage, where the audience gets to learn live from various mentors.

“In these challenging times and a VUCA world we live in, we need to help expand the mindsets of entrepreneurs who are by nature problem solvers. Entrepreneurs turn adversity into opportunity. If we help them improve their mindset, we can have more problem solvers solving our current societal problems,” Layco said.
