In collaboration with DigitalFilipino Club members Elance and Online Jobs University, we launched a FREE online learning initiative, the Virtual Staff Entrepreneur Program #vsep, to support freelancer aspiration of those we have met in various locations all over the country.
This online training program was inspired by our participation in the Next Wave Cities ICT Roadshow where we realized a lot of basic skills are necessary to support or pursue e-commerce and start-up entrepreneurship aspirations.
This was conducted by Genesis Reonico of Online Jobs University, Ron Cirujano of Elance, and Janette Toral.
