About this event

One complimentary ticket for AVPN members.

Limited seats are available.


Conducting due diligence is one of the most important yet also most resource consuming aspect of impact investment. The goal of this process is to support the identification of high-quality opportunities, reduce risk, and create a diversified portfolio of impact investments.

This seminar will focus on the key considerations in making direct investments which will be different from the due diligence for investing in impact funds. The due diligence process will look at the management team, business model, social mission, execution capacity and exit strategy. While many of these elements are subjective, having a framework and a standardized process is important to enable comparison between projects and facilitate the investment decision process.

As part of AVPN’s impact investment series, this seminar will be facilitated by Insitor Impact Asia Fund (“Insitor”), a social venture capital fund that provides equity and mezzanine funding to social enterprises in emerging and frontier markets.

Through presentations, case studies and discussions, participants will be able to:

  • Understand Insitor’s strategy and theory of change
  • Examine one type of due diligence framework
  • Glean key insights and advice on important elements to take into consideration in the due diligence process
  • Review 1-2 case studies and discuss potential risks and opportunities

Join us to build a vibrant impact investment community across Asia!
