Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of the economy. Our vision is to provide a platform for the best and brightest entrepreneurs and startups to be supported and funded by established business leaders and investors through the reality TV show and online community “The Final Pitch.”
The Final Pitch is a business reality TV show created by serial entrepreneur TV producer John Aguilar. First produced in Manila, Philippines, by independent media company Streetpark productions, Inc., the show follows the journey of entrepreneurs as they pitch to an esteemed panel of investors, undergo mentorship and business challenges, and transform their enterprises, all in preparation for their “Final Pitch.”
Fast forward seven seasons, The Final Pitch airing on CNN Philippines has successfully established its mark as a show that has truly made a difference-responsible for the funding of millions of dollars into its seed-stage startups, creating jobs, and helping inspire the future generation of entrepreneurs. In its own way, it is aiding in the reverse diaspora-inspiring more overseas-based Filipinos and even foreigners to come to the Philippines to capitalize on the opportunities now abundant with the rise of its economy.
Now, the time has come to grow the show beyond the Philippine shores through The Final Pitch: ASEAN.
The Final Pitch: ASEAN (TFPA)
is following a similar format as the Philippines version but expanding to cover more mature scale-up startups who are in pre-series A to series B stage of funding. One (1) Investor- Judge will be chosen for each ASEAN country to be the sole representative of their country. To be invited will be Investor-Judges from Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, and the Philippines. Startups will have the chance to pitch their businesses to the Investor-Judges for a chance to partner and possibly expand to their target country.
