TL;DR – A global search for social entrepreneurship – The Chivas Venture 2018 registration is now open until 28 October 2017. Register at www.chivas.com/en-my/the-venture to receive a share of USD 1 million fund.
Chivas Regal calls on people to support the global community of social enterprises. The Chivas Venture is a global search to find and support the next generation of entrepreneurs who are in it to win it, while changing the world for the better – businesses that combine profit with purpose to “Win The Right Way”.
Since its inception in 2014, almost 6,000 social entrepreneurs have applied for the chance to receive a share of the annual USD1 million fund. There are currently 29 countries from five continents taking part – all of which are looking to find their most talented local entrepreneurs to compete on a global stage. One winner will be selected from each country and given the chance to take part in an exclusive Accelerator Programme.
For the Malaysian leg, the local panel of judges includes Ehon Chan (Executive Director of ASEAN Centre of Entrepreneurship); Ho Kay Tat (Group CEO of The Edge Media Group); Freda Liu (producer, presenter and anchor for BFM89.9 The Business Station’s ‘Enterprise’ radio programme); and Sébastien Mouquet (Managing Director of Pernod Ricard Malaysia). The next step of this Venture would be three weeks of online voting, where the allocation of the first USD200,000 of the fund will be put into the hands of the public.
The Chivas Venture 2018 will then culminate in a series of high-stakes pitches at the Chivas Venture Final, where the remainder of the USD 1 million fund will be distributed. Applications for the 2018 competition are now open
in Malaysia, and will close on the 28th of October. For more details, please visit www.chivas.com/en-my/the-venture.
