I really don’t know what is the criteria (aside from beating the odds in 2009) for crowning (sorry I can’t think of other terms) those entrepreneurs as the most outstanding Filipino entrepreneurs last 2009 but it is on the Entrepreneur magazine on the December 2009 issue. Many businesses have survived last year and not only them. My hunch is maybe they had an unexpected growth or more revenue created than any other businesses.
Nevertheless I will just give their names and their business names on the list below but if you want to know more about them, then get a copy of the Entrepreneur magazine.

So those are the outstanding Filipino entrepreneurs last year. By the way I just want to make a comment regarding the technology side of their businesses. I mean on the world wide web. I notice that only one doesn’t have a website, which is VIVIAN SARABIA OPTICAL. And among the websites that I visited from them, only three websites are appealing and has a good website design. What I mean about good design is the ease of navigation, visitors are not confused on where to go and visual appeal. Those are Mang Inasal, Pizza Pedrico and Aquabest. Pizza Pedrico’s is great on the design and very attractive but it loads too slow because of the flash animations and it looks like it will not be good on search engine optimization like Mang Inasal and Aquabest.
