AVPN IMPACT CIRCLES
Intimate convenings to deploy more capital strategically into outstanding
Social Purpose Organisations

 
The AVPN Impact Circles aim to connect outstanding Social Purpose Organisations (SPOs) with AVPN members and community partners to facilitate more impactful financial and non-financial investments.

The first of the Impact Circles Series will be held on 16 November in Hong Kong, and will focus on Healthcare Affordability and Accessibility. By bringing together no more than 15 participants representing family offices, impact funds and accelerators/incubators, the AVPN Impact Circle provides a productive and outcome-oriented environment to strengthen multi-sector collaboration.

Expected outcomes:

  1. Broaden discussions on impact investment in the healthcare sector with insights from practitioners and thought leaders;
  2. Facilitate potential investment and/or co-investment;
  3. Streamline and deepen communications between SPOs and investors;
  4. Break down barriers for collaboration across different players in the impact investment ecosystem.
