Dubai, UAE: Taka Solutions has announced that it has been selected one of 27 startups from across the world, to be a finalist of Chivas Regal’s The Venture, a global search to find and support the most promising social entrepreneurs, who aim to succeed in business, whilst having a positive impact on the lives of others.

The company’s selection was the result of a successful pitch made by Charles Blaschke, Managing Director, and Chris Burkhardt, Commercial Director, the announcement highlighted.

Taka Solutions, said the announcement, will represent the Gulf region in the upcoming final of The Venture in New York City in July, to compete for a share of The Venture’s USD 1 million fund. The 27 global finalists will reportedly have a chance to pitch in front of an expert panel of judges, who are looking for businesses that can offer scalable and sustainable solutions to real-world issues.

Ahead of the global final, the company informed, the competitors will take part in The Venture’s Accelerator Week hosted at University of Oxford by The Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship.

Commenting on the judges’ decision to award the title to Taka Solutions, David Freeborn, Managing Director of Pernod Ricard Gulf, said that it was reached after serious deliberation, and added, “We believe the business is a worthy winner capable of representing the region on a global stage, and competing strongly for its share of The Venture’s USD 1 million global social enterprise fund.”
