UC bags National Best Business Idea Award 2012


University of Cebu’s winning streak continues as they were named National Champion of the Food Category and 1st runner up of the Non-Food Category in the 2012 Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) 6th Best Business Idea and Development (BIDA) Award.
The presentation and defense of their proposal was held last October 3, 2012 at the PCCI Boardroom, Mckinley Hill, Bonifacio Global City and awarding was held this October 10, 2012, Manila Hotel during the 38th Philippine Business Conference.
The UC Team, which hails from the University of Cebu – Banilad Campus, comprised of students Jezreel Ezer Archival BSBA 4, Sheryl Benitez BSA 4, Marrise Tumampos BSAcT 3, Wilheim De Leon BSA 3 with Coach Mr. Christopher Biore, CPA.
UC was the only team that sent two proposed projects with both making it to the top ten in their respective categories. The projects were “Fully Loaded Hanging Rice” for the food category that integrated culture, tradition and tourism and “Mango Seed Kernel Oil” for the non-food category.
UC Team Coach Mr. Christopher Biore said, “Our students really worked very hard on the projects, experiencing three failures in prototyping attempts. We let them work undisturbed in one room and they stayed in one cubicle for long uninterrupted hours for two days. These projects are really character building activities for the team and confidence boosting experiences to the hundreds of business students left behind at the campus.”
Biore added that the UC administration was very supportive, shouldering everything before and during the trip to Manila. This is their second time as national champion in the food category, after they won it first in 2008 and their first time to participate and win in the non-food category. There were a total of 34 universities and colleges all over the Philippines who made it to the final judging with the University of Cebu – Banilad being the lone representative of the Visayas Region in both Food and Non-Food Categories.
