UNIVERSITY OF SAN CARLOS STUDENTS WIN IN ASEAN COMPETITION
ACCOUNTANCY students of the University of San Carlos were the champions in the Philippine Elimination Round of the ASEAN Future Sustainable Leaders 2021 case competition.
The team won for its crowdsourcing app, FindMi.
The students’ case study focused on uplifting consumers and micro, small and medium enterprises.
The team is composed of Joyce J. Agot, Trisha Mae G. Bahande, James Teodoro E. Monsanto, and Steven Jeremy C. Tan
Bahande said that the app aims to help small businesses establish their digital presence especially during the pandemic.
“What we wanted to do was to help these small-scale enterprises and street vendors to become resilient and digitally present through FindMl. If we want to have sustainable economic growth at a wider scale, we have to focus first on our grassroots, our microenterprises and street vendors, since they are the most vulnerable,” Monsanto said.
Monsanto’s team will represent the Philippines in the ASEAN final round in December. The students will compete against representatives from other ASEAN countries.
