With the Philippine economy seeing better prospects this year, the time has come for the Filipino entrepreneur to shine. And why not? With the pandemic experience, new industries have emerged; the resilient and enterprising Filipinos have found opportunities to turn things around.
The Asian Development Bank places the country’s growth at a minimum of 4.5% in 2021 and 5.5 percent in 2022. Fitch Ratings has given the country a ‘BBB’ while it’s a ‘BBB+’ for S & P, both forecasting stable outlooks.
That’s good news especially to small business owners or MSMEs, which not only provide a third of the country’s GDP, but also create an additional 5.5 million jobs for the workforce, according to the 2019 data of the Philippine Statistics Authority.
This is where the 2020 Property Developer of the Year Awardee SMDC’s innovative Gold Residential-Offices development comes in. Reducing business operating cost while helping improve MSMEs’ competitiveness, SMDC’s second foray into the Residential-Office (RESO) development provides a means to attaining its vision of enabling them and partnering with them in realizing their dream of prosperity.
Enabling the Filipino entrepreneur
For entrepreneurs who are establishing businesses for the first time, GOLD RESO is perfectly timed. What weighs down many micro or small businesses is the cost associated with office space.
Now a business owner no longer needs to shuttle from his residence and place of work. It’s more efficient and safer to be in just one place – a home that doubles as business office and vice versa. There’s actually a good chance too that your business clients will just be a door or floor away from you.
GOLD RESO offers the opportunity to convert capital otherwise used as extra operating cost to customers into real assets that they will eventually own. In doing so, they can keep the prices of their products and services competitive. It’s not at all surprising that those looking for a secondary source of investment income will want to be among the first owners of such a development.
Empowering the Enterprising Filipino
GOLD RESO’s location provides access to the dynamic and progressive city of Parañaque, a leading destination for tourism and entertainment as it is home to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and has a large concentration of casinos, luxury hotels, high-end malls and exclusive residential developments.
With GOLD RESO, one can expect the same luxurious lifestyle and generous amenities of an SMDC development that an entrepreneur would need. Take for instance the provision of back-up power to all units to avoid business disruption or downtime. Physical support amenities such as co-work spaces, meeting rooms and function rooms are well in place to cater to the needs of the growing entrepreneur.
The building identification system, lobby security and comprehensive CCTV camera system lends itself well to giving any business a professional face, and the security that it requires.
Living and doing business at GOLD RESO is designed to let both the owners and their clients enjoy the complete community experience highlighted by health and wellness amenities, restaurants, state-of-the-art connectivity and an activity courtyard where you can discover and nurture your next big ideas.
It is the Filipino entrepreneur’s time to shine, and SMDC is providing the perfect homebase to make that happen.
