Project GO, a reality show that gives Filipino entrepreneurs a chance to pursue their dream business ventures, has revealed in its latest episode the Top 4 contestants vying for the P1 million cash prize to help make their dream business a reality.
Presented by GoDaddy, the company empowering everyday entrepreneurs worldwide, in collaboration with AXN, the show named AO Innovations Tech (represented by Arnel Andal), Loop Store PH (created by Dominique Trinidad and Pocholo Espina), Mindoceo (founded by Ryan Marcel Ibay, Calvin Lorenzo Borja, and Noelle Sofia Mison), and Staffz (represented by Pearl Janine De Guzman) to proceed to the next stage of the Project GO competition
From hundreds of entries received from aspiring Filipino entrepreneurs during the Open Auditions held for three weeks in August, selected hopefuls with the most promising business ideas moved on to pitch directly to the show’s Mentors: Maggie Wilson (Owner, Acasa Manila); Bea Cupin (Lifestyle & Entertainment Editor, Rappler); the Tung Brothers: Mikko (CEO & Co-Founder, Odd Job Bob), Macky (Vice President of Advertising, Ligo and Co-Founder, Odd Job Bob) and Mark (Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Ligo); and Tina Shieh (Marketing Director for Asia, GoDaddy).
Derek Wong, KC Global Media Asia’s Vice President and Head for Production and Creative Services, said, “From the beginning, Project GO has hoped to seek out ingenious, innovative ideas that have the potential to turn into fruitful and thriving businesses, and the hundreds of Filipino entrepreneurs that heeded the call did not disappoint. It was not an easy task for the Mentors to shortlist only four candidates out of the many promising ones that they reviewed. All of the contestants demonstrated a very high entrepreneurial spirit, which shone through despite the challenge of not being able to be physically present on set.”
Tina Shieh, GoDaddy Marketing Director for Asia and a Project GO Mentor remarked, “This whole process has deepened our understanding of the Filipinos’ admirable entrepreneurial spirit. With high hopes, we intend to further hone their skills, build on their ideas’ potency, and help them bring their dream ventures into reality. No matter what happens, they are all winners and we wish everyone the best of luck.”
Project GO airs every Thursday at 8:25 p.m. on AXN. Weekly simulcasts are also available on AXN Asia and GoDaddy Asia’s YouTube channels.
