Our friends a Chivas Regal recently launched The Venture competition in Kenya, after seeing how diverse and flourishing the social entrepreneurship scene is in this awesome hub of a country. This competition, in its third year globally aims to support budding, innovative social entrepreneurs by awarding them $1 million in funding to support their businesses! They’ve awarded $2Million to startups already in the past two years, because these awesome people believe that generosity and success go hand in hand.
What are the criteria to apply for a share in this enormous fund? Simple, you have to be a startup that is extraordinary, and that uses business for good with the goal of creating positive change to the world and a better future for it. We know that there are more than a few companies at the Garage that are already trying their luck as we speak!
Not only will successful applicants have a chance to pitch for a share of The Venture’s $1M fund, but they’ll also be supported while doing so, as they will receive world-class mentorship from Chivas’ large diverse network of already-established entrepreneurs.
If you’re interested and your business meets the simple requirements, don’t doubt yourself, try your luck and register here, so that you may submit your business model and possibly get selected to make your pitch.
Go ahead young startup, we believe in you!
