"Business Works!"

As their committee slogan proudly exclaims, the Enterprise Development Committee, or EntrepComm, aims to promote entrepreneurship as a viable channel towards development.

In order to promote entrepreneurship among adults, EntrepComm's “Tara, Magnegosyo!” training capacitates suppliers to access big business as market outlet with its Round Table Discussion with Suppliers, and fills in the gaps in entrepreneurial requirements among small businessmen with its Bridging the Gap.

For the youth, it has joined hands with the Pilipinas Shell Foundation in the conduct of the 3-day Youth Business Camp to generate livelihood among the out of school youth in communities where the LCF members operate.

In the works are other projects, such as integrating entrepreneurship in the elementary curriculum of public schools. While working hard to promote entrepreneurship in communities, the EntrepCom also enhances the skills of its own members through skills trainings which these members can use for personal purposes and at the same time can further share with their communities.
