ABOUT ANGAT PILIPINAS AWARDS
Angat Pilipinas Coalition for Financial Literacy, Inc. presents The 2016 Angat Pilipinas Awards Night
The Angat Pilipinas Awards Night is a celebration of people and for people in the Philippine personal finance, investment, and entrepreneurship arenas. This is where we can focus our spotlight on financial institutions, banks, government units, NGO’s, personal finance bloggers, mentors, coaches, advisors, social media groups, authors, teachers, print and broadcast media – so often the unsung heroes of microeconomic progress and financial literacy movement in the Philippines.
The Angat Pilipinas Awards (APA) will be honoring another batch of financial literacy heroes on its sophomore outing which will take place on September 24, 2016.
The APA aims to acknowledge that every individual within the personal finance and investment circle is crucial to the overall success of the financial literacy advocacy. The awards were created to recognize excellence and achievement in these various areas.
