A leading ecosystem builder that moves capital towards impact
As Asia’s #1 social investment network, we are an ecosystem builder that works to increase the flow of capital towards impact in Asia, ensuring that resources are most effectively deployed.
At AVPN, we approach social investment as a continuum of capital, in which funders may combine grants, debts and equity across multiple investments within their own portfolio, to achieve deeper impact.

How it all started
AVPN came to life in 2011. After forming the European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA) in 2004, our founder Doug Miller was keen to create a similar network in Asia, for diverse funders and resource providers to collaborate and move capital towards impact. In 10 years, AVPN has reached over 600 members in our network. We are also the only platform in Asia that serves the full spectrum of social investors.
How we do it
Improve effectiveness of members across Asia
Multi-Sector Collaboration is a cornerstone of our work. We break down silos and encourage collaboration across sectors to improve the effectiveness of our members in Asia. Today, we have a network of over 600 members from the private, public and people sectors.
WHAT WE DO
AVPN as a platform to connect, lead and learn
We are about helping our members connect with each other, learn from one another, and lead the sector to achieve systemic change.
We achieve this through 5 pillars: mobilising capital, building impact communities, creating resources and tools, running an Academy, and organising events to distil learnings and best practices for practitioners.
