AVPN collaborated with Joyful Frog Digital Incubator (JFDI) to host a Friday happy hour session for our member, The Asia Pacific Network Information Center (APNIC) on 15th May.

In the landmark startup building–Blk 71 at Ayer Rajah, APNIC brought four grantees to discuss how technology can create greater social impact to a full house of technopreneurs. It also introduced APNIC’s ISIF Asia Program, which provides small grants and awards to help advance local and regional projects aimed introducing, improving, and applying Internet technology for the benefit of Asia-Pacific users and communities.

It was a fun and relaxed night, with many interesting exchanges of brilliant ideas that might change the world in the future!
