BSR is an Outreach Partner of the AVPN Conference. Now in its fifth year, the AVPN Conference will bring together a diverse group of funders and resource providers from around the globe to take part in the largest gathering of philanthropists and social investors in Asia. This premier event provides opportunities for knowledge-sharing, collaboration, and advocacy for the growth of the social sector ecosystem in Asia.

This year’s theme “Collaboration for Impact” reflects the importance of partnership across sectors and borders when looking to tackle some of Asia’s biggest challenges. The event will focus on the need for strategic and outcome-focused approaches to social investing across the full spectrum of social and financial returns—from grantmakers to impact investors.

The three-day gathering will feature examples of collaboration from AVPN members across Asia including deep dives into sectors like education, health, livelihoods, the environment, and more. The program will also include AVPN’s Deal Share Live—Investment Showcase, featuring pitches from 30 social purpose organizations supported by AVPN members.

Speakers will include thought leaders, innovators, and practitioners from across the region that are all making strides to grow and improve the philanthropy and social investment sector in Asia.
