It is less than two weeks to the AVPN annual conference and we have just launched the crowdfunding campaign for the investment showcase session.
This year, the 20 organisations represent a diverse and impressive group: spanning across nine countries from US to China, ranging from high-tech social enterprise to a hawker training school. Amongst the founders, there are Engineering Ph.D, Children Nobel Prize Nominee, TED Talk speakers, and numerous award winners.
Visit our campaign page today and support your favorite organisation to create greater social impact! All contributions will go to the People’s Choice Award winner directly!
Pledging support is easy, simply log onto http://startsomegood.com/avpn2015 and choose the categories that you want to support, starting from $10 to $500.
Our investment showcase organisations have also generously offered their products and services to appreciate your support!
