Homegrown brand New City Commercial Corporation or NCCC is set to launch the LTS Entrepreneurship Awards in its bid to honor the best entrepreneurs in Mindanao. The search willl kick off next year.

“The LTS Entrepreneurship Awards will be given to the Top 6 Mindanaoan businessman who excelled both in their business and in their efforts to help the community,” NCCC Group of Companies Chief Executive Officer Lafayette Lim said in a press conference held at NCCC Mall Buhangin.

The four-storey NCCC Buhangin Mall, which is the 9th mall under the LTS Malls, Inc., officially opened in July this year.

Lim said that aside from business success, they will also be on the lookout for entrepreneurs with outstanding efforts in community development through various causes. This includes helping the environment, the youth and even their fellow businessmen.

The LTS Entrepreneurship Awards is NCCC’s way of honoring the life and legacy of Lim’s grandfather Lim Tian Siu. The Lim patrairch established NCCC as a small textile store along Uyanguren St. some 40 years ago.

“The NCCC brand started in Davao but is now the biggest in Mindanao,” Lim said.

NCCC has thrived despite the many challenges including competition offered by companies from outside Mindanao. Lim said they are banking on the goodwill and affinity they have established in the city in the past 40 years.

The NCCC Mall in Buhangin has a supermarket, department store and retail shops. It also recently opened the state-of-the-art cinema with the Dolby Atmos technology.
