During the Mentor Me On Wheels last April 8, 2019 at the Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall, Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo Founder Joey Concepcion highlighted the importance of creativity and innovation for entrepreneurs to scale up. 
 He also added, 
We will do our best to coach and teach you. Hopefully, you have the skill, now you have to find the market. And these mentors are here to improve your skill and help guide you as to how you market that skill.”
Creativity and innovation are considered as great attributes to a successful business model. With these two, artists who are part of the different arts industries such as performing arts, visual arts, fashion and lifestyle, events, crafts, culinary arts, digital arts, and advertising and publishing can turn their passion and creativity into successful enterprises.

Go Negosyo, in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry, conducted a special installment of Mentor ME On Wheels which focused on Filipino creativity and innovation. The program has traveled long from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and eyes to reach a total of 30 cities across the Philippines also with the goal to bring free mentorship closer to every Filipino. The leg was attended by more than 500 mentees and 100 mentors from the creative and non-creative industry.

The event was also graced by DTI Sec. Ramon Lopez and Former Presidential Adviser for Political Affairs Francis Tolentino.
Ang maganda kasi sa creativity and innovation yun bang it separates great companies to good companies. What keeps a company going is really creativity and innovation. Continuous innovation is the key… Big companies would even need innovation for their business model to continue and even their business models would have to be innovative otherwise maiiwan po at matatabunan ng ibang up and coming entrepreneurs. The other good thing about instilling creativity and innovation in your business model is it really elevates your business model, value adding,” Sec. Lopez highlighted.
MMOW Creativity and Innovation presented mentors from the creative industry who imparted their know-how and technical skills to the participants. Mentors from the creative industry were Bernie Liu, CEO & President of Golden ABC Inc.; Rajo Laurel, Fashion Designer and Founder of House of Laurel; Jay Aldeguer, President of Island Souvenirs Group; Zarah Juan, Founder of Zarah Juan; and 100 more mentors! Moreover, Go Negosyo mentors from the non-creative industry also shared their expertise during the event.

There is so much creativity in Filipinos. Hindi tayo mauubusan ng creativity, you know why? Because we’re fun people, we love to enjoy life as it should be enjoyed. Because of that, we have a very good foundation for creativity… This theme of creativity and innovation is very timely because to magnify the creativity of Filipinos we need innovation. Creativity alone will not bring us to a global platform. It is a good foundation but we need innovation,” said Golden ABC’s Bernie Liu.
