In 2014, Chivas Regal launched The Venture, a $1Million annual fund and global search to reward those who are using business to create positive change. Over the last two years we have invested $2Million in a new generation of extraordinary startups, that do well by doing good, because we believe generosity and success go hand in hand.
"I'm so grateful there are people in the world who can figure out solutions to complex global problems. We all live in a global community and I absolutely believe social entrepreneurship is the only way we can create positive change."
- Eva Longoria, actress, social activist and one of The Venture judges in 2016.
