Chivas Regal continues its global campaign “The Venture Year 3” in search of young entrepreneurs with smart ideas to change the world.

Quentin Job, Managing Director of Pernod Ricard (Thailand), has arranged a press conference for       The Venture Year 3 by Chivas Regal, a global campaign supporting the new generation to Win the Right Way, and encouraging entrepreneurs to run their businesses in a way that benefits society. The campaign searches for individuals or groups with fresh ideas with which they can do good while doing well. The competition welcomes social enterprises in their start-up stage and growth stage. The press conference will take place at The Hive Bangkok, Piman Sukhumvit 49
The Venture Year 2 wrapped up in New York City in July 2016, with the winner Oscar Andres Mendez, founder of Conceptos Plásticos in Colombia. His business transforms plastic and rubber waste into an alternative construction foundation for permanent and temporary housing. These plastic blocks work like Lego pieces, allowing whole communities and families to play a part in the simple construction of their own homes. This not only prevents plastic pollution and diverts waste from landfills, but it also creates sought-after building materials so that communities can establish a physical infrastructure in the form of housing, shelters, classrooms, community halls and other buildings. It has helped build contemporary shelters for 42 families displaced by violence, whilst recycling 200 tons of plastic in the process. In The Venture Year 3, Chivas Regal continues its social mission, honored by the National Innovation Agency (NIA) as its supporter.
At the press conference, the panel of judges will be introduced. They will play an important role in inspiring the contestants and groom a new generation of entrepreneurs with a concept of sustainable social contribution. The judges are Quentin Job, Managing Director of Pernod Ricard (Thailand), Phanart Chairat Director of the National Innovation Agency, Ada Chirapaisarnkul founder and director of Thai Young Philanthropist Network (TYPN), Pita Limjaroenrat Managing Director of CEO Agrifood Company Limited, Ruangroj “Krating” Poonpol, 500 Tuk Tuks venture partner, and Arch Wongchindawest founder of Socialgiver. These six judges will choose the most outstanding social entrepreneurs and business ideas.
  The winner of The Venture Year 1 Aliza Napartivaumnuay from Socialgiver and the winner of The Venture Year 2 Somsak Boonkam from Local Alike will share their experience as representatives of Thailand and the friendships they have formed with social entrepreneurs from around the world.
