About this event

Social Investment has a variety of different formats, this spectrum spreads from philanthropy, corporate social responsibility to impact investments. Governments across the Asian region have decide to support the social sector through public private partnerships especially with regards to social finance. Corporates and philanthropists are looking at their CSR and grant making through a strategic lens. In a landscape such as this, catalytic networks such as AVPN play a key role. AVPN is the home of more than 195 Asian social investors, venture philanthropists and foundations committed to using venture philanthropy and social investment tools to achieve societal impact. Our core mission is to increase the flow of financial, human and intellectual capital to Social Purpose Organisations (SPOs), and for those resources to be deployed as effectively as possible to address key social challenges facing Asia today and in the future.

The session will deep dive into the current international developments in the social investment sector as well as explore the Indonesian social investment sector with a view to highlight the key opportunities and challenges.
