Myanmar Webinar 1 – The Social Investing Landscape


In the first of our 3 webinars on Myanmar, we invited Allison Morris, Co-Founder of Project Hub Yangon, who shared insight on the social enterprise space in Myanmar. Their perspectives are gleaned from the incubation programmes that they run from the capital. She is joined by Nick Lazos, Director at Insitor Management, which finances high quality startups and early-stage social businesses with the promise of growing them to a larger scale and higher profile. Together, they provided our AVPN audience with an interesting look into the social investing landscape in Myanmar – from their direct experiences in the country.The recording for the webinar and the powerpoint is further below:
