Becoming a member

AVPN is a membership network made up of organisations that are deploying financial, human and intellectual resources to increase social impact in Asia. This includes:

Foundation/Trust

Non-profit organisations that fund social causes. Rather than running their own activities, trusts and foundations achieve their objectives by giving money to SPOs which use the money to run their activities.

Family Office

Wealth management advisory or establishment for high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals.

Corporate/Financial Institution

Mainstream company that invests directly in social impact through CSR or through establishing a corporate foundation.

Impact Fund

A fund that makes investments made to SEs and businesses with a sustainability focus, with the intention to generate social and environmental impact alongside a financial return.

Government Related

Government related members include statutory boards, government organisations and associations, and large international organisations that provide governments a platform to cooperate.

International Non-Governmental Organisation

International NGOs that provide funding for local NGOs to deepen their impact.

University/Research

Universities, academies, research institutes and think tanks that are engaged in the social economy.

Accelerator/Incubator

Organisations that provide facilities, expertise and other forms of non-monetary support to nurture young enterprises and entrepreneurs.

Intermediary

Intermediaries help bridge between investors and investees to help with deal sourcing, management and measurement, and often provide some capacity building for the investee organisations.

Private Equity/Venture Capital

Private equity and venture capital firms engage in direct investments with privately held companies ranging from startups to mature companies.

Service Provider

Service providers are businesses and nonprofits that provide support services to the social investment ecosystem such as consulting, legal support and talent management.

Network

Online and offline organisations that bring diverse stakeholders together.

MEMBERSHIP PROGRAMME

Introducing our new and
improved membership programme

As part of our 10th Anniversary work we have revamped our membership programme. Our previous membership model has been around for 10 years or so, with additional tiers evolving organically.

So we have developed three new membership tiers, which are now available to new members.

VISION

USD 10,000

Annually

This tier seeks to convene small groups of CEOs and Board Directors so that they have an opportunity to compare notes on decision making and connect with other impact thought leaders.

Benefits of this track include:

Note

CATALYST

USD 5,000

Annually

This tier seeks to support those on the frontlines of ecosystem building, whether they are sharing their knowledge, developing communities, or looking for ways to move capital across Asia.

Benefits of this track include:

KNOWLEDGE

USD 1,000

Annually

This tier is a self-directed tier that allows those still investigating the regional landscape to take their time and orient themselves.

Benefits of this track include:

FAQs on New Membership Programme

As part of our 10th Anniversary work we have revamped our membership programme. Our previous membership model has been around for 10 years or so, with additional tiers evolving organically. Once we collectively took stock, we had a few key insights:

  1. Members look to us for a regional cross-border perspective
  2. Members value our ability to convene people in groups large (7500) and small (5)
  3. Members want to be able to customise their membership to some degree to suit their ecosystem building goals
  4. Members want to be able to talk to each other through our channels
  5. Members love our Market Reps and how you can connect them to unusual allies


So we have developed three new membership tiers, which are now available to new members.
Yes – organisations primarily interested in attending the AVPN Conference have the option of purchasing tickets at the standard rate (subject to these organisations qualifying as social investors), or they can sign up for the Knowledge tier (USD1000) and purchase discounted conference tickets at the 50% member rate.
