RICCI EVERYDAY Inc. is pleased to inform that Chizu Nakamoto, our Co-founder, COO, and MD of Rebbecakello Ltd.(U), is elected as a Japan finalist of “CHIVAS VENTURE 2018” (sponsored by Chivas Brothers).
CHIVAS VENTURE is a global competition supporting socially innovative startup companies aiming to create a better future and working on solving global social and environmental problems through business. It was initiated in 2014 by “Chivas Regal” developing prestigious Scotch whiskey.
In 2018, which will be the 4th session, recruitment for electing national delegates participating in world competitions was made in 29 countries including Japan.
This time Chizu Nakamoto was elected as the representative of Japan because of its high social impact, creating a place to work proudly with peace of mind for those who have been socially marginalized like single mothers living in urban area and former child soldier in Uganda and contributing to the sustained improvement of their lives through the ethical fashion brand.
Chizu will participate in the World Competition as the representative of Japan and compete for business ideas with social entrepreneurs from other countries. At this competition, funds of a total of 1 million are distributed according to online voting by the general public and the results of the final pitch judged by experts. The final pitch of this year will be held on the stage of The Next Web (TNW), the largest technology festival in Europe, in Amsterdam on May 24th. Fifteen thousand influential engineers, international investors and media will gather at TNW and finalists will appeal their business ideas in front of the most audiences ever.
