"I shared with them knowledge, but they gave me conviction and inspiration."

- Mark Lawrence Cruz, Head of Academic Affairs


June 12, 2016 - Independence Day takes a special turn as the 28 scholars, comprising SEED Philippines' pioneering batch of social entrepreneurs, graduate. After two full years of rigorous training and learning outside the classroom and inside the 34-hectare community known as the GK Enchanted Farm, we have no doubt that these graduates are ready to become the next generation of innovators and take the lead in creating inclusive wealth for all.







LEFT PHOTO: In the past week leading to this day, the now-graduates had to fulfill one final requirement: business proposal defense. Our SEED scholars were given 15 minutes to pitch their business ideas and substantiate how it is addressing a social concern in front of a jury of entrepreneurs, including Tony Meloto himself.

   

RIGHT PHOTO: Veering away from their usual farm-ready uniforms, the students had an early celebration during their graduation ball. Themed Garden Wonderland, it was a night for the students to enjoy good food and music (and even better company) prepared by the farm's management team and culturally-diverse community of interns.
