About this event

ChangeFusion and UNDP cordially invite you to participate in the virtual Pitching Event “Impact Enterprise 20 (IE20) : Growing social impact investment in Thailand”

In September 2020, UNDP and ChangeFusion launched the SDG Impact Accelerator Program, the first accelerator program in Thailand that truly focuses on SDG impacts.

The program provides support to 20 impact enterprises to achieve financial sustainability, while also addressing the business challenges that the enterprises face. Finalists are provided guidance on impact measurement and management, tailored business and impact acceleration assistance through a series of customised and interactive workshops. Impact enterprises will also get an opportunity to connect with the impact investors and venture capitalists, as well as support from social impact practitioners and senior experts from UNDP.

As part of the program, UNDP and Changefusion are organizing the virtual pitching event to facilitate the matchmaking between impact investors and impact enterprises as well as to increase the enterprises’ exposure to the wider impact investor community within the Asia Pacific region. Asian Venture Philanthropist Network (AVPN) and the Securities and Exchange Commission, Thailand would be our key outreach partners in bringing in members from their impact investor networks.

This virtual pitching event will be showcasing 10 outstanding impact enterprises who are currently seeking additional capital to scale both their business and impacts.

We will be organizing the virtual pitching event on Zoom, which will take place on two Thursdays in the second half of March 2021.
