See business owners make pitches, work with mentors, impress judges, and ultimately, win a grand prize of a million bucks to turn their bright ideas into reality
Even in these challenging times, entrepreneurs remain hard at work.
In fact, the most creative of them might even be working twice as hard as new needs have emerged with the today's new normal!
There isn't a group that knows this better than the team behind Project GO, a new TV series coming to the Philippines brought to you by GoDaddy and AXN Asia.

As its name suggests, Project GO essentially helps aspiring Filipino entrepreneurs to take the plunge, trust their instincts, have faith in their plans, and just go for it—with the right advice, mentorship, and resources, of course, all of which will be provided to them on the show.
The Project GO team has been scouting for the most deserving Filipino entrepreneurs to come on board since August. From a pool of over 400 applicants, they've narrowed it down to just a handful, a decision that proved to be way harder than everyone expected.
It's a testament to the ingenuity and can-do spirit of the Filipino entrepreneur; even with something like a worldwide pandemic raging in the background, they continue to find ways to uplift and improve the lives around them, perpetually figuring out what they can do to make things easier, faster, better.
Chosen entrepreneurs come from a variety industries, all of whom have something fresh to bring to the table. Those who made it to shortlist have equally diversified ideas, too; they either plan on meeting the new normal's new needs, or present a fresh way of doing old, familiar things.
To help them develop a well-rounded business, they'll be working with Project GO's mentors: Macky, Mikko and Mark Tung (of Ligo Sardines and Odd Job Bob PH), Maggie Wilson (of Acasa Manila), Bea Cupin (a social media expert and experienced lifestyle journalist), and Tina Shieh (GoDaddy's Marketing Director for Asia).
The prize for the entrepreneur that emerges as Project GO's champ is a whopping P1M to kickstart their business, but more than the financial aid, it's the chance to go back and forth with experienced business owners (and possibly fellow contestants, too) about best practices, learning from mistakes (of which there will be many, but they must be welcomed), and keeping the passion for entrepreneurship alive.
More than being a show that funds bright ideas, Project GO also tells the story of what it takes to turn bright ideas into real, tangible results that are good for the person behind them, and the communities they serve. Ultimately, the show tells the stories of who and what the Filipino entrepreneur is.
Project GO premiers on November 19 on AXN in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia at 8:25 p.m.
