In partnership with Kemenparekraf, AVPN aims to build the social investment ecosystem in Indonesia. Through a series of convenings, we will provide opportunities for social investors to connect, learn, and act on building back a strong foundation for Indonesia. We invite funders and resource providers to join us in taking a deep dive into the local ecosystem while exploring how we can build the social economy on a regional scale.

The first convening in this series will focus on social entrepreneurship, social impact & investment readiness. Recognising the growing importance of impact and sustainability, impact investing in Indonesia is on the rise. To build a strong pipeline of impact investing deals, social entrepreneurship must also grow in tandem. As such, the development of social enterprises in Indonesia is critical. AVPN will bring diverse stakeholders together – including investors and entrepreneurs – to assess the outlook of social entrepreneurship and impact investing in the country, and where the growth opportunities are to nurture the ecosystem.

Join us to engage in a:

  • High quality panel discussion to understand and assess the roles that different stakeholders are playing in the ecosystem
  • Impact measurement and Investment ready presentation from experts who will explain the concept of impact measurement and investment readiness
  • Entrepreneurs’ Showcase, in which ongoing social entrepreneurs will share their growth journey and challenges in building their enterprises

If you are an investor or entrepreneur who is looking to engage in impact and sustainability, join us in this virtual event to gain a better understanding of the potential of social entrepreneurship and its investment ecosystem.

  • Foresee the social entrepreneurship future from key stakeholders point of view in Indonesia market
