Social Entrepreneurs are Once Again Invited to Take Part in Chivas Venture
For the fourth consecutive year, Bulgarian startups with socially responsible businesses can apply for the Chivas Venture international competition. The initiative is global and has a total prize pool of USD 1 million. The last day to apply is October 30. The competition seeks ideas that lead to positive change, improving people’s lives. Chivas Venture will include a total of 29 countries and each will introduce the best social project on a local level. Participants must be at least 25 years old and own a registered company.
Local Chivas Venture jury will nominate the Bulgarian finalist. The team of the selected startup will also participate in the international accelerator program along with the other 28 finalists from all over the world. An official online voting will also be conducted before the final round and then all finalists will share a total prize pool of USD 200 000 proportionally to the number of votes collected from the online voting. At the grand final in July 2018, an international jury will determine the finalists who will share the remaining USD 800 000.
This year, the competition in Bulgaria is held for the first time under the slogan “Successful people sleep less” and as part of the campaign a series of evening events called “Evening Business” are organized.
In the previous edition of the competition, Bulgaria was represented by startup company Sea Harmony, which develops a system of vertical mussel farms restoring the ecological balance in the so-called dead zones in coastal waters.
