Developing Inclusive Business & Impact Investment:
Panel Discussion & Reception

Thursday, 14 March 2019 | 5pm – 7pm
District 1, Ho Chi Minh City


Defined as companies that are supporting communities at the bottom of pyramid or through the supply chain, inclusive businesses often struggle to access capital and support. Often depending on traditional finance institutions for business loans, inclusive businesses will need to identify alternative finance mechanisms to scale for impact.

In partnership with the Inclusive Business Action Network (iBAN), AVPN is implementing a 3-part programme to raise awareness of the concept of inclusive business, train inclusive businesses in becoming impact-investment ready, and explore how capital providers can fit inclusive businesses into their portfolios.

AVPN invites you to the first session in the series which will bring together a broad ecosystem ranging from inclusive business owners to investors, philanthropists and government representatives. The evening will begin with a panel discussion to bring clarity to the value of inclusive business and opportunities for growth in Vietnam. The gathering will conclude with a networking reception, encouraging participants to connect and learn from one another as well as interact with both international and local experts.

We hope you can join us. Please register your interest to receive a formal invitation and further event details.
