Las Vegas, NV, United States, 2007/06/04 - Philfortune, an essential information hub and a virtual corporate community of Filipino-Americans and Filipinos worldwide, improves its Filipino American Business Directory and adds more features to its website.
Philfortune.com, the premier information hub catering to Filipino-Americans, continues to bring enhancements to its website to serve the needs of millions of Fil-Ams in the United States as well as Filipinos all over the world.
According to the U.S. Census, the Filipinos are the second largest ethnic community in America numbering over two million. The statistics are expected to grow and so as the need for the different sectors of the entire Fil-am community to organize, keep in touch, and establish linkages in order to strengthen the tie that bonds them all together – and that which bonds them with other Filipinos worldwide.
Philfortune’s Filipino American Business Directory and Fil-Am Community Directory provide an avenue for Filipino-Americans to strengthen that distinct bond that unifies Filipinos all over the world. In these directories, various sectors of the Fil-am community including the business sector are listed for easy reference.
Philfortune — A “Google” for the Fil-Am Community
Network engineer Terence Elumba, founder and president of Philfortune.com, said the site aims to be the “Google for the Fil-Am community as it endeavors to provide relevant information and services to the large number of Fil-Ams in the US.”
To realize this goal, Philfortune now has several other directories including listings of Insurance agents and companies, Chambers of Commerce and Registered Nurses, and Professional Organizations. Aside from its Filipino American Business Directory, Philfortune also provides access to Philippine embassies, consular sites and their resources in the U.S., and links to cities and provinces in the Philippines.
To provide Filipino American businessmen more opportunities for linkages and exchanges, Philfortune has recently launched a business forum where they can chat, exchange business ideas and strategies, share resources and experiences, discuss current issues and events affecting the Fil-am community and share thoughts on any topic they find interesting.
To keep the Fil-Am community and other Filipinos worldwide abreast of the current happenings within the Fil-Am community, the Philippines and the US and the international Filipino group, Philfortune also carries relevant news and features on the Fil-Am Community, the Philippines and US, and the Global Filipino Community. It also provides Embassy updates and details about the latest events and happenings.
