The Venture, a program launched by Chivas Regal, invests $1 million dollars on startups that create a positive impact and a better future. Out of 6,000 applications, WeaRobot was selected amongst the 30 finalists. The final event will take place in July, where WeaRobot has only 5 minutes to convince the judging panel that their work can change the world.
To prepare for the final, WeaRobot’s CEO, Ernesto Rodríguez, traveled to Oxford to take part in an acceleration week program created by the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, at the University of Oxford.
For five days, all the finalists had “the opportunity to develop leadership skills, participate in practical workshops and to be inspired by global experts on critical topics that affect social startups”.
The Venture is now on its final weeks before the event. Every week, from the 8th of May up to the 12th of June, the public can decide between which startups a total of $250,000 dollars will be distributed.
Voting for WeaRobot represents a step forward into the democratization of mobility.
