In the Philippines, teachers tend to find other sources of income due to some financial circumstances. With this, some teachers were entrepreneurs (termed as teacherpreneur) during break time and after office hours. This paper determined the profile of the teacher-entrepreneurs and identified the Personal Entrepreneurial Capabilities (PEC) of the aspiring Teacher-Entrepreneurs. Further, this paper assessed the Personal Entrepreneurial Capabilities of the teacher-entrepreneurs as startup for business and evaluated the Personal Entrepreneurial Capabilities of the Respondents before and after the training. A total of 89 teacher entrepreneurs (31 females and 58 males) were surveyed using a questionnaire with likert-scale responses. The researcher pointed out the following significant conclusions: first, majority of the respondents were young which fall on the age bracket of 20 - 29, male, single, permanent in employment status, less than 5 years in service, low monthly net income and they don’t have business background. It implies that even though respondents were young, they are already secured in their employment status. Second, the highest personal entrepreneurial capabilities were commitment to work contract, information seeking, opportunity seeking, and systematic planning/ monitoring. The lowest capabilities were risk taking and demand for quality/ efficiency. It implies that respondents were more on information seeking because of their profession while less risk takers since they don’t want to lose what they currently have. Third, self-analysis output implies that respondents were capable of being an entrepreneur. Last, the personal entrepreneurial capabilities that need improvement are risk taking, demand for quality/efficiency and self-confidence.
