The AVPN team would very much like to hear your feedback on the event. Thanks to those who submitted their feedback forms. If you did not have a chance to do this at the event, you can send us feedback through this simple online survey.One of AVPN’s primary missions is to build bridges between the different silos that make up this eco-system, and we are happy to have achieved that at our conference. We saw an excellent quality mix from foundations, family offices, private equity firms, private banks, government agencies, universities and many other stakeholders in the social investment sector. Just as importantly, our conference attendees included not only providers of financial capital, but also resource providers in terms of human and intellectual capital. This conference has proven to be a successful platform in bringing together philanthropy and social investment – the dialogue and learning from US, Europe, and across Asia will no doubt help.Lastly, we need to thank our wonderful partners again – without whom this would not have been possible at all. Our deepest appreciation to Lien Centre for Social Innovation, National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre, and to all our marketing partners, sponsors and supporters. We appreciated very much the speakers who provided such meaningful content. Speakers came from 16-18 countries, some traveling for over 20 hours, to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for developing the the VP / social investment market in Asia.We need engagement from all of you; tell us what you liked, how we can help you, and very importantly, how we can improve next year’s conference. We will ask you this again in 6 months, as you see your needs evolve/change. We hope to see you at next year’s conference – and please sign up early to avoid last minute disappointments! Additionally we are planning various workshops and webinars over the next 12 months and you will see these under the events section of the AVPN website.
