Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, instead of pitching at the Chivas Venture Global Final event, each of our finalists will immediately receive $40,000. Distributing the $1 million prize fund equally among our 26 finalists means that funding can be put towards creating positive change at a testing time for people across the globe.

Pernod Ricard Chairman and CEO Alexandre Ricard said:

“It is with great sadness that we have decided to cut short this year’s Chivas Venture competition due to the impact COVID-19 is having across the world. Now more than ever, our world needs the passion and dedication of those who want to bring about positive change. That’s why we have decided that each of our finalists should be provided with secure funding now, so they can continue their important work and continue to positively impact their communities in spite of these volatile conditions, which will be particularly challenging for fledgling businesses and the communities they serve.”


Our finalists this year have found unique and creative ways to tackle a wide range of social, environmental and economic challenges, many of which have been exacerbated by the global pandemic, especially in at risk or isolated communities. Find out who each of our 26 finalists are below.
