Zoe Saldana joins Chivas Venture

ITB helped secure Hollywood actress, businesswoman and philanthropist Zoe Saldana to act as the judge of the Chivas Venture – a global competition that annually gives away $1 million in no-strings funding to the hottest social startups from around the world.

In its fifth year of partnering with Chivas, ITB cast, negotiated and secured the Avengers star who will join a panel of expert judges at the Chivas Venture Global Final, hosted at Europe’s leading tech festival in Amsterdam – TNW Conference – on 9th May 2019. Saldana has significant experience in business and philanthropy to inspire the Chivas Venture social entrepreneurs and help the panel decide how the prize fund should be split between the five grand finalists.

Through her new digital media platform BESE, Zoe is shining a light on diverse cultures and untold stories to combat their lack of representation in mainstream media.

Tune into watch the live final on the 9th May through Chivas channels.
