Programs and Services
The cornerstone of the strategy to democratize entrepreneurship is the Grassroots Entrepreneurship and Management (GEM) or Entrep-Eskwela, a training program especially designed for micro and small entrepreneurs. Consisting of 20 stand-alone modules, GEM is a complete course on entrepreneurship covering three major areas: Self-Mastery, Enterprise Mastery and Situation Mastery.
GEM has been the centerpiece of many CSR programs implemented by Bayan for, among others, ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Accenture, Globe, Philip Morris, Citi Foundation, JP Morgan Chase & Co., OXFAM Philippines, World Vision, Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) and Accenture.
The Technopreneurship program combines two training programs into one. The first component consists of technical skills training that includes technical-vocational courses registered under TESDA. The modules follow the training standards prescribed in the Training Regulations of TESDA. The second component is entrepreneurship training. The modules of the entrepreneurship training are not generic. They are tailor fit to the technical skill being taught. The entrepreneurship training has eight integral modules.
The beneficiaries of the Technopreneurship program are disadvantaged youth and adults who are trained and equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills that can help them obtain livelihood opportunities in form of employment, self-employment or entrepreneurship.
Through the support the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Bayan Academy provides continuous training and upgrading of skills suited to the demands of the job market (local and international). The target beneficiaries of the program are out of school youth and unemployed adults.

Participants, mainly MSMEs are expected to gain insights on ways to be creative, best practices, and tools they can use to help them grow their business on Facebook and Instagram.
Dubbed as the National Digital Marketing Campaign, the program aims not only to introduce and to educate MSMEs on the value of digital marketing in growing their businesses but also connects likeminded institutions to be part of the campaign as a way to empower the country’s MSMEs to become global.
It is the overarching objective of this initiative to provide an effective platform to MSMEs of the country the opportunity to explore new potentials beyond boundaries. It is a venue that they themselves will create their communities where they will exchange their goods or products and for those in service, will use the platform to provide an avenue to invite foreign tourists and visit the different parts of the country.
