AVPN is introducing our new series of in-country focus webinars from December 2013. The webinars will feature practitioners and subject experts representing different perspectives in social investing and philanthropy in the featured countries. The first country to be featured is Myanmar. The amount of excitement and enthusiasm that has been going around in both the social and commercial sectors over the country have resulted in a flurry of noise – in the media, the investors and also the non-profit industries. However, this remains a tough landscape to maneuver and it requires not only patience, careful due diligence but also the right partnerships. Check our events page for the other webinars.
