AVPN Annual Conference: 9-10 May 2013, Singapore
Creating Social Impact: blending philanthropic and investment capital
The inaugural Asian Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN) Annual Conference will be the first and largest gathering of venture philanthropists and social investors in the region. We will be welcoming up to 300 delegates including our member organisations and active supporters. We expect participants from more than 25 countries to attend this event representing venture philanthropy organisations, impact investors, private equity, wealth management, academia and grant-makers, as we advance the practice of venture philanthropy in Asia.
The conference will be held at the Singapore Management University’s downtown campus. Participation in the conference will be limited and priority will be given to active providers of financial and non-financial resources to high performing social purpose organisations in Asia. The conference will seek to share learning and both broaden and deepen the venture philanthropy and social investment community across Asia.
