According to the report of the University of Oxford €œRedefining the success in a changeable world€, 95% of the professional young people wait for major responsibility of the companies in the solution of the great global problems. Against this background, Chivas Regal sends the fourth edition to global level, third a national level, of Venture Billy goats, an initiative that it looks for to detect, to select and to promote undertakings that carry out an economic activity with profit aims and which they as well have positive a social impact in its surroundings. The inscription for the local instance will extend until the 29 of October in the following link.

Include to me, the first inclusive portal of uses of Latin America, were the winner of the local edition in 2015, first that was disputed in Argentina, and participated in the global end realised in New York in July of the current year. Whereas Xinca, a from Mendoza company that produces sneakers with recycling of tires and fabrics in disuse, and that employs interns of the penitentiary of San Rafael, were chosen as local winner in the last edition. Both will comprise of the jury of this edition.

The reason by which Chivas Regal decides to become jumbled completely in this scope is in the original DNA of the brand. From the home, their founders James and John Chivas, committed themselves to use their personal profits in the businesses to support their local community. Therefore the concept that uses €“ €œWin the Right Way€ - recognizes that desire to make a difference in the lives of the others through own work is real and significant for a new generation that thinks that the businesses can be a force for the good by means of entrepreneurs who count on a social intention.
