About this event

AVPN Year End Event JKT

The role of social entrepreneurs (SEs) as a vehicle to create impact businesses and drive innovative and sustainable solutions is gaining an uptake in Indonesia. However, considerable challenges still exist both from the supply and demand sides.

In this year-end gathering, AVPN and YCAB Foundation aims to facilitate an insightful discussion on the ecosystem of SEs in Indonesia. Questions that we will use to bring the action plan forward include:

  • What counts as a ‘successful’ and ‘scalable’ entrepreneur to be included in the social investment pipeline?; and
  • How can we catalyse hotspots outside of Jakarta to lessen the centralised flow of SEs inwards to the capital, e.g. in Medan, Makassar, Bali, or Yogyakarta?

This intimate event will also reflect on AVPN’s milestones over the year. As we introduce our 2018 outlook, we invite you to share your thoughts and continue partnering us on our journey to build a vibrant and high-impact philanthropy and social investment community in Indonesia, and across Asia

Please join us for a morning to connect, learn, and be a thought leader.
