FINGER ON THE ASIAN + AUSTRALIAN PULSE
CBMP started in November 2019 as a passion project and launched as a grassroot podcast highlighting Asian + Australian lifestyle and pop culture, while featuring stories and people with Asian, Australian and Asianish heritage.
The media platform has since expanded to a news site in early 2021, supported by a team of passionate and enthusiastic students from universities across Sydney, all with a story to share. In 2022, our Creative Internship Program is supported by the City of Sydney to help young and diverse creatives gain industry experience to spring board to their dream media career.
CBMP's TV Pilot Show was a top 10 finalist for the 2021 ABC iView Pitch-O-Rama contest. The concept founded by JJ Chen, mentored by Dr Helen Vatsikopoulos, award winning journalist, academic and lecturer in journalism at UTS; and brought to life by creative producer, Mayu Iwasaki, co-founder of Bubbletent Australia and actress, and Director Lenny Fung, will be a first to showcase mainstream Asian and Australian representation on Australian media.
In 2022, CBMP officially formed a tech team to revolutionise online shopping with AI called MAICBUY. See it. Tap it. Buy it. MAICBUY was conceived from The Studio Founders Program in late 2021 and underwent Blackbird Giants Program in 2022. Right now, the founding team is pitching left right and centre at VCs, angel investors and accelerator programs.
During our evolution, one thing remains the same - Our Mission. We continue to deliver light hearted, relatable and human centric lifestyle perspectives for a cohesive Asian + Australian community.
