We have a decade to turn intention into action. Join AVPN's signature events to engage with diverse funders and resource providers, deepen knowledge sharing, and move capital towards impact
The AVPN Global Conference is the largest social investing convening in Asia that gathers funders and resource providers from across the world to share knowledge, build strategic partnerships, and address socio-economic challenges at scale. The annual flagship event breaks down silos to bridge the worlds of philanthropy and impact investing with private equity and institutional investing.
This year, AVPN is celebrating 10 years of ecosystem building effort that has led it to become the world’s first Asian social investment network. As we reflect on Asia’s social investment trajectory, we invite you to establish your impact footprint on this past journey whilst mapping out how you can continue to be part of this global conversation in the decade ahead.Learn More
