Follow this year’s Chivas Venture finalists on social media as they journey through the competition.

Social media is playing an increasingly prominent role in modern entrepreneurship, allowing businesses to generate their own exposure, funding and interaction with customers in ways that would - until relatively recently - have been utterly inconceivable. 

And the tool is still evolving. Aside from being a powerful vessel for a company’s voice and vision, other elements of social media such as crowdfunding are allowing social enterprises to directly tap into and foster communities who are eager to support and form a connection with social change. Now, businesses can make their stories - and the stories of those they are trying to help - available and more personally relatable to a larger number of people than ever before.

It’s a two-way street, one that gives you the option to follow the progress and champion the cause of the Chivas Venture finalist to your heart - all at the click of a button. Here is where you can follow all of the 30 game-changing startups on social media:
