Beer Company Funds Social Entrepreneurs

Guinness & Co. might be best known for their beer, but the Arthur Guinness Fund is providing aid to social entrepreneurs located all over the world including West Africa and Indonesia.

The Arthur Guinness Fund has partnered with Ashoka, the world’s leading association of social entrepreneurs. 30 entrepreneurs will be chosen by the Arthur Guinness Fund, and they will be given what they need to make their dream a reality.
