AVPN Annual Conference

The AVPN 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.

AVPN Virtual Conference 2020

8 - 12 JUNE 2020 | Online

The Power of NetworksMoving capital towards impact

Against the backdrop of social and economic vulnerabilities around COVID-19, the 8th AVPN Conference is choosing to respond in a constructive way. We are optimistic that the timing for this year’s conference will also be a chance for the sector to come together and share learnings and ideas on ways to navigate in a world affected by the pandemic. Indeed, more so than ever before, we need to harness the strength of our members by moving more capital towards critical challenges that have been exacerbated by the virus.
