To inspire young people to start up their own business, NOW26, a digital terrestrial variety TV channel of Nation Multimedia Group, recently welcomed 16 outstanding young business owners to share their views and ideas on "NOW Talks".
NMG Chairman Suthichai Yoon said last week that the channel was created for the new generation and young business owners who want to be successful.
The new channel aims to respond to their demands in this regard.
“We now have ‘NOW Talks’ as a platform where outstanding start-up business people meet and share their stories behind their success. How do they design a business? How do they cope with huge challenges? What are their inspirations?” he said.
The first instalment will soon be screened. In this premier episode, NOW Talks welcomes 16 young entrepreneurs who have already been recognised as the new wave of outstanding young-blood business owners from the digital marketing arena such as JM Cuisine, an online noodle house, Builk Asia and Builk.com, Insta.Printa, PupeSoSweet.com, Siamsquare Technology, Hubba Thailand, Pym Jewellery, Taamkru, Wongnai.com, Noonswoon mobile application, jeban.com, Octagon, Larinn by Double P, Hua Lampong, a mobile application developer, and SocialHappen.com.
Bangkok Business Broadcasting, a subsidiary of NMG, will operate NOW26 channel under the “Biz Life Variety” concept, which is being transformed from the Krungthep Turakij satellite TV channel.
The channel will be aimed at the urban mass audience, particularly inspiring investors and top executives.
NOW26 expects to turn a profit on Bt904 million of revenue in its third year.
