The Asian Decade

Northeast Asia is exhibiting strong social innovation across the public and private sectors, as it takes big strides towards sustainable development. While corporations are developing sophisticated CSR strategies, the private wealth is building in-house capacity to invest more meaningful. Central to this conversation is a focus on ESG, impact investing, and collaboration.

As an economic powerhouse in Asia, Northeast Asia has the potential to demonstrate its leadership in sustainable growth.

VOICE OF OUR MEMBERS

The Asian Decade

The Covid-19 pandemic has upended our lives over the past months. We live in challenging times and there is certainly much to be frustrated about - Lives are lost, health and safety are a concern and restrictions prevent us from meeting one another in person.

However, as the saying goes: We can be the change we wish to see.

AVPN recently met up with some of our members across Southeast Asia to find out what some of our members are doing to not only build back better but also build forward better.

If irritated oysters can make pearls, what are passionate, frustrated, determined, and innovative social investors able to create in response?

MEMBERS' EXPERIENCE

What do our members think about AVPN?

I’m really excited to come back to another AVPN convening because there are always really interesting people here and in-depth conversations to be had. There are philanthropists, impact investors, fund managers, academics – so there’s a broad range of people and I always find that we are setting up a lot of opportunities every time we come.

Julia Newton-Howes

CEO at Investing in Women

I like the AVPN Regional Summit a lot as the themes are much more relevant to what we are seeing very specifically in this part of the world. Because we are all bound by our interests in these common themes, the atmosphere just feels a lot more intimate, a lot more familiar. I think that’s great when you attend a conference because the last thing you want to be is to be lost in a huge sea of people.

Virginia Tan

Founding Partner at Teja Ventures

The event was a great networking opportunity for us. We started and re-established relationships with various regional and global groups that seem interested in the way Morningtide adds value to the investment and business growth process. We saw a lot of value in the event itself.
