Join AVPN's signature events to engage with diverse social investors, deepen knowledge sharing, and drive a movement to maximise impact
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.
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.View Session Recordings

AVPN is bringing the Southeast Asia Summit to Indonesia in February 2020. Social investors looking for collaboration and knowledge-sharing opportunities in Southeast Asia are encouraged to join us in building the region for impactful social innovation.
After 3 years of hosting a Myanmar Summit which brought together social investors from around the region, AVPN is transitioning this event into a broader Southeast Asia Summit. Through an intimate setting to encourage meaningful connections, the 3-day summit will gather leading funders and capacity builders working across the continuum of capital who have an interest in the region.Southeast Asia Summit
