PHILIPPINES (8 September 2020) – GoDaddy, the company that empowers everyday entrepreneurs, in collaboration with AXN, the globally known general entertainment channel owned by KC Global Media Asia, today announced that its new five-episode reality mini-series, called Project GO, will be hosted by TV host and entrepreneur, Maggie Wilson-Consunji.
The co-produced show is designed for Filipino entrepreneurs and innovators to compete for a chance to win Php 1 million in prize money to help grow their entrepreneurial business. Project GO will feature up-and-coming Filipino entrepreneurs and showcase their innovative ideas. The shortlisted contestants will be going head-to-head for a chance to win the prize money. The pilot episode will premiere this November on AXN.
As the entrepreneur behind Acasa Manila (formerly Casa Consunji), Maggie knows well the challenges of being an entrepreneur, especially now that the pandemic has impacted businesses worldwide. However, these challenge times did not deter her from staying afloat. 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. 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,” Wilson shares as she talks about being more flexible with how she runs her business.
The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed Wilson to innovate in dealing with her clients. Maggie 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 explains. “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.”
Open auditions began on 7 August and ran until 2 September 2020, with people from universities, institutions, and small and mid-size enterprises all responding to the challenge, sharing stories of how they translated their innovative and creative ideas into tangible ventures. GoDaddy’s sponsorship is designed to extend support and assistance to entrepreneurs and small business owners, as they work to keep their businesses active with the current economic challenges caused by the pandemic. With 20 million customers worldwide, GoDaddy is the place people come to solidify their idea with online presence, build a professional website, attract customers, and manage their work.

With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting economies and lives around the world, we hope to inspire Filipino entrepreneurs through Project GO, to follow their dreams, and to continue moving forward and jumpstart their businesses.”
