ARQCapital Partners (ARQ) is pushing “smart capital” investments by raising P1.5 billion to fund 50 high-growth medium enterprises (MEs) over the next two years.

Many businesses have started out from humble beginnings—whether this includes hole-in-the-wall establishments, mom-and-pop stores, or even home-based online businesses. When the right cards are played, these concepts grow into big names that are known and loved by many.
