CBRD-SERN draws research interest from scholars abroad

For the past two weeks since February 6, the De La Salle University Center for Business Research and Development – Social Enterprise Research Network (CBRD-SERN) was visited by scholars from universities abroad. The SERN core team, composed of CBRD Director Dr. Raymund Habaradas, Management faculty member Mr. Patrick Aure, Ph.D in Business student Ringgold Atienza, and Management student Ian Benedict Mia, held talks with Ms. Anne Sophie Roux, a Comparative Politics Masters student from the Paris Institute of Political Studies, and with Dr. Joseph Sy-Changco, Assistant Professor in Marketing from the University of Macau.

The said guests were interested in the social entrepreneurship research being conducted by CBRD-SERN. Ms. Roux intends to study the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm (GKEF) as a case study to “analyze the resurgence of the bayanihan spirit.” Her main source of information about GKEF is CBRD-SERN’s work on social enterprise challenges and strategies, as well as social business incubation in GKEF.

Dr. Sy-Changco, on the other hand, was interested in having research collaborations focusing on the development and evolution of the social entrepreneurial initiatives of Gawad Kalinga. His other research interests include export marketing, organizational learning, and consumer behavior in the Asia-Pacific region.

CBRD-SERN aims to undertake research on social entrepreneurship and social enterprise management. Since 2013, faculty and students affiliated with SERN’s founders have been contributing to a social enterprise case study database focusing on topics such as challenges and strategies, incubation, and financing. Recently, the leadership of CBRD-SERN has been assigned to Mr. Patrick Aure of the Management and Organization Department.

CBRD-SERN is looking forward to drawing more research interest from various universities as social entrepreneurship continues to emerge in the local and international landscape.

Last June 23, the DLSU Center for Business Research and Development conducted the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Academic Partnerships for Small Business and Information Communication Technology (ICT) Knowledge Transfer at the 20th floor multipurpose hall of the Br. Andrew Gonzalez Hall together with practitioners and academicians from DLSU, Mahidol University, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, Victoria University, and Australia-ASEAN Council.

During the opening remarks, Australian Ambassador to the Philippines Amanda Gorely stated, “I’d like to congratulate the organizing team for putting together this event today and promoting the concept of academic partnerships for ICT knowledge transfer. Through initiatives like these, we will be able to improve the efficiency of business and knowledge transfer in the ASEAN region. This will also help improve small businesses and economic development in the region.”

The event highlighted several research papers about the ASEAN small and medium enterprise (SME) sector and sought to establish potential collaborative research projects among the practitioners and academicians present in the event. Among some of these researches include the challenges and opportunities of SMEs and ICT, and the SME Development Plan. Undergraduate students also presented their papers on Facebook content creation and user engagement of social enterprises, and online crowdfunding as a source of startup capital.

Fifty years since the establishment of the ASEAN, member nations are now moving towards sustainable development and inclusive growth following the significant improvement of the standards of living in ASEAN countries. As the central theme of the research workshop, the ASEAN countries are called to “strive to sustain scientific, socio-cultural, technological, economic, and political growth driven by innovation, efficiency, peace, security, stability, prosperity, and social progress.” One important aspect of this growth is the SME sector.

According to 2015 data provided by the Philippine Statistics Authority, there are over 900, 914 establishments in the country, 99.5 percent of which are micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSME) and the remaining 0.5 percent of which are large enterprises. Moreover, of this number, 896, 839 MSMEs are in wholesale and retail trade.
