Our guest for this episode is Mr. Jason dela Rosa, founder of the growing Facebook community called Bounce Back PH. As the founder of this fledgling group composed of business owners (from MSMEs to large corporations), NGOs, government units, media, professionals, freelancers, OFWs, employees and basically everyone affected by this Covid-19 pandemic, Jason’s shares with us his insights on how everyone can bounce back and thrive in the new normal.
Jason just started the group in early March, a few days after the quarantine in Metro Manila started.
The goal was to form a think tank of business leaders — to discuss and formulate ways to overcome this unprecedented event.
Jason was only expecting a few hundred people to join the group. But because of the timeliness of this idea, the group grew in the thousands and tens of thousands.
To date the main Bounce Back PH group has 40k members, while the other Bounce Back sub groups (Real Estate, Tech, Tourism, Events, Education, Freelancers, UAE, ASEAN), number in the thousands as well.
