One Championship continues to build a rockstar team of CEOs, World Champions, and partner brands around its martial arts rendition of “The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition.”
Now, The Home Of Martial Arts announced on 20 October that fellow “Lion City” staple Andaz Singapore will also join the lineup as a partner brand.
Andaz Singapore is one of the city-state’s premier accommodations, focusing on hospitality standards backed by ingenuity and perseverance.
“Along with the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of ONE Championship, Chatri Sityodtong, we are strong advocates for the Asian culture of resilience, determination, and imagination,” said Amy Lu, Director of Operations at Andaz Singapore.
“In a world where there seems to be injustice all around, a stage like ‘The Apprentice’ helps to level the playing field and shines a light to brilliant business minds the world over – regardless of their background.
“We are proud to be a partner in this exciting new project and we look forward to welcoming the batch of aspiring entrepreneurs that will fight it out for the ultimate title.”
That ultimate title will be a US$250,000 contract to work as Sityodtong’s protégé at ONE’s headquarters in Singapore for one year – an award that will be granted to only one of the 16 contestants who will take part in the show.
ONE also announced that Zoom’s Founder and CEO, Eric Yuan, will also make an appearance as a guest CEO.
Yuan will join previously announced guests like Grab CEO Anthony Tan, Zilingo CEO Ankiti Bose, Catcha Group and iFlix CEO Patrick Grove, and Everise CEO Sudhir Agarwal.
Expect more guest CEOs to be announced in the near future.
Other partner brands to join “The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition” include Jakarta International Expo and League Sportswear, QuadX, and Twilio.
ONE will work with all their partner brands on a variety of marketing and branded content during the show, which is expected to air in early 2021.
Hari Vijayarajan, Group CCO of ONE Championship, added that the new partnerships will only better serve martial arts fans around the world.
“I am pleased to announce ONE Championship’s third-quarter 2020 strategic partnerships and the addition of Zoom and their CEO Eric Yuan as a guest on the show,” Vijayarajan said.
“I would like to thank all the brands for their trust in the world’s largest martial arts organization and ‘The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition.’
“ONE Championship continues to strive to deliver the most authentic and exciting martial arts experiences and content stacks to our fans around the world.”
