Director, xchange

Your Education and Experience?

I am currently the Director at xChange, an impact investor and incubator for early stage social enterprises in the Philippines.  As a mentor, I not only work closely with entrepreneurs in the xChange portfolio, I also mentor enterprises in Villgro’s portfolio; the British Council CSO SEED program; the Tuklas Visayas Innovation Lab; and many others. I regularly meet with (social) entrepreneurs for formal and informal learning and feedbacking sessions. Prior to joining xChange, I served as Executive Director of a social enterprise ‘Gifts and Graces Fair Trade Foundation’.

I have worked in the field of social development, innovation, and entrepreneurship for the last 15 years and I am strongly committed to social equity and poverty eradication through entrepreneurship, education, and culture. I am proud to say that I have had the honor of being named an ‘Asia Society Asia 21 Philippines Fellow’, Class of 2007, in recognition of being one of the Philippines’ young leaders in social development. I was also a Supporting Women Leaders Scholar of the IE Brown Executive MBA.  I graduated from the program in 2013 and was invited to join the Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society.
