Maggie Wilson-Consunji will host “Project GO.” The five-episode reality mini-series is produced by GoDaddy, the company that empowers everyday entrepreneurs, in collaboration with AXN, the globally known general entertainment channel owned by KC Global Media Asia.
“Project GO” is designed for Filipino entrepreneurs and innovators to compete for a chance to win 1 million pesos in prize money to help grow their entrepreneurial business. It will feature up-and-coming Filipino entrepreneurs who will showcase innovative ideas.
As the entrepreneur behind Acasa Manila, formerly named Casa Consunji, Wilson knows the challenges of being an entrepreneur well, especially now that the pandemic has impacted businesses worldwide. However, these challenge times did not deter her from staying afloat as she successfully pivoted her business, expanded her offerings and is committed to growing her business in the future.
“I tapped into my creativity to keep my business going,” Wilson said. “I ventured into producing videos, widening my range of offerings and have been more collaborative in nature, while strengthening my presence online with the help of GoDaddy.”
The new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has pushed Wilson to innovate in dealing with her clients. She believes that “Project GO” can help inspire entrepreneurs like her.
“By watching the show and listening to the contestant stories, we hope it can strengthen your entrepreneurial spirit, equip you with resources, enhance your creativity and help to transform you into entrepreneurs of today,” Wilson explained. “I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to be working with GoDaddy again and I’m also excited to hear the business ideas that will be highlighted on the show.”
