AVPN Promotes Venture Philanthropy in China


January 8, 2015


AVPN’s executive vice-chairman, Andrew Muirhead, gave a presentation to the SVP China group recently on a trip to Beijing. The gathering included members of SVP Beijing, representatives from the private equity and private banking sector and local foundations, all who were very excited to learn more about venture philanthropy. There was a great buzz to find out the differences with impact investing and the spectrum of possibilities within the social investing world.
