Over the past years, individuals and organisations have experienced the potential of Impact Investing. In addition, tech startups have the potential to bring in the latest technologies from around the world, thereby leapfrogging developments in localised areas.

The Impact Investment and technology space in Myanmar is slowly but surely coming to life. Several organisations are actively shaping and driving these fields further. In this webinar, we heard from AVPN members, Phandeeyar and Rockstart Impact (One To Watch‘s Accelerator Programme), who shared insights on the most recent developments in Myanmar.

Through the webinar, Jes Kaliebe Petersen and Robbert Groenen:

  • Identified investment opportunities in Myanmar’s tech start-up and impact entrepreneurs spaces;
  • Evaluated the impact that your investment can make;
  • Set expectations along the investment journey.
