AVPN with support from Investing in Women and in partnership with AmCham and AusCham in Vietnam look forward to the second installment of Gender-Lens Investing in Practice with a focus on showcasing women entrepreneurs.
AVPN, a pan-Asian network for social investors, with support from Investing in Women, an Australian government programme, has launched a series of events around Southeast Asia that will highlight the importance of gender lens investing for building resilience in the region following the COVID-19 Pandemic.
On 7 April, more than 130 people gathered for a hybrid event to set the scene on gender-lens investing and how it drives value for investors in Vietnam.
In the second installment, the event focused on how it looks in practice.
What is an investment showcase?
The audience heard from both high potential women-led enterprises and their investors who shared their journey, their vision for the future and their learnings from engaging with each other.
The audience got invaluable information on how they connected, what were the opportunities and challenges in fundraising and the dynamics of both sides.
It was a great opportunity to listen and to learn about the relationship between investor and investee and how gender has colored those experiences.
