The long wait is over. For the first time on Philippine TV, viewers will see the coming together of the best and brightest entrepreneurs on a reality TV show that will link them to multi-millionaire and billionaire investors who are searching to own a piece of the next big business idea. All of them will go through a business boot camp and series of challenges for their chance to make the pitch of their lives in a once-in-a-lifetime funding round.

Entitled ‘The Final Pitch’, the reality TV show is loosely inspired by the Emmy Award-winning shows ‘Shark Tank’ and ‘The Apprentice,’ and will challenge entrepreneur contestants in the realities of scaling their existing businesses. The show is set to premiere on History Channel this July 29, 2017 at 8:30 pm.

“The Final Pitch is a result of my personal mission as well as a collective advocacy of a lot of business owners who would like to see SME entrepreneurs grow and succeed,” shares the creator and host of The Final Pitch, entrepreneur TV producer John Aguilar.

Aguilar has assembled a formidable lineup of investors that include the multi-awarded Chairman and CEO of the Sterling Group of Companies, Dr. Henry Lim Bon Liong; self-made billionaire and the youngest chairman of a publicly-listed company in the PSE, Joseph Calata; Co-founder of Potato Corner and now Venture Capitalist Jose “Jomag” Magsaysay; and lastly, 25-year old millennial CEO of the MFT Group of Companies, Mica Tan.

In addition to the potential funding from the investors, contestants will receive business coaching and networking opportunities from an esteemed lineup of mentors, who are composed of well-known business experts and inclusive business champions, namely Presidential Consultant for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion; former President of MicroVentures, Inc., Senator Bam Aquino; internationally renowned industrial designer Kenneth Cobonpue and; the gurus of the Masters in Entrepreneurship program of the ACE Center for Entrepreneurship and Management Education, among others.
