SM invites small online entrepreneurs to set up shop in SM via the StartUp Package


To enable and inspire small businesses like the one it once was, SM launched last week The SM StartUp Package. This aims to provide small online businesses the support they need so they can set up their own shop in an SM mall.

SM is inviting digital-based micro business owners to sign up so that they can benefit from start-up friendly rental rates, free use of kiosks or carts, marketing assistance, financial assistance with BDO, and mentorship from SM experts on operations and marketing.

The SM StartUp Package is looking for businesses under health & wellness; home hobbies and at-home experiences; smart gadgets for productivity; functional fashion; and comfort food.

The 100 StartUp Markets, as they will be called, will be situated in prime mall locations within 13 regional and premier malls in major cities:

  • SM North Edsa
  • SM Megamall
  • SM Mall of Asia
  • SM Southmall
  • SM Pampanga
  • SM Clark
  • SM Grand Central
  • SM Sta. Rosa
  • SM City Cebu
  • SM Iloilo
  • SM Bacolod
  • SM CDO Downtown Premier
  • SM Lanang Premier

“We created The SM StartUp Package because we saw how Filipinos persevered in the past year. Very much true to the spirit of Henry Sy, who always said he worked harder during bad times, many MSMEs did not let the pandemic stop them from providing good service and products—even from their own homes,” said SM Supermalls President Steven T. Tan during the virtual launch last October 15. “We want to give them a chance to further grow their businesses and brands, and enable them to start their own SM shops which they can one day grow into business empires, just like our founder once did.”
