NAJIB in Make The PITCH!

A surprise appearance by Malaysia renowned chess arbiter and organizer, Najib Abdul Wahab in 8TV reality show "Make The Pitch"! Make The Pitch is a TV reality show that is looking for innovative ideas from Malaysia Entrepreneurs. If the panel of investors is satisfy with the idea, they will invest in to the business.

Najib was proposing to set up an academy with 88 students in it. He will then employ foreign GM to come and coach. He also said that he will published chess books and set up an online chess site in Bahasa Melayu. 

Najib presentation was excellent. He was able to response the questions asked by the judges with great confidence. However, the judges were not convince with the return they will be receiving. They also think that he is not an Entrepreneur. Instead, they considered this as a noble act to promote chess in Malaysia. In addition, Najib was advised to collaborate with Malaysian Chess Federation (MCF).

Sadly, Najib failed to make the pitch. Nevertheless, salute to him for attempting to bring chess to a higher level (unlike some who only know how to TALK but no ACTION). Don't give up your dream Najib! Like they said, "When there is a will, there is a way"! Good Luck =)
