Details

This seminar, organized by Asia Social Ventures, is about impact investment in the ASEAN region.

For those who are not familiar with impact investing, it's about investing into companies or organizations, and funds with the intention to generate measurable social impact alongside a financial return.

This seminar will feature several models in various sectors, including commodities, sanitation, education and others. To highlight a success story, we have an exciting guest speaker joining us, Jack Sim, who is a pioneer in the global social enterprise scene. This seminar will also feature an update on Asia Social Ventures' work in the Philippines and future projects in other ASEAN countries.

Asia Social Ventures' mission is to empower rural communities through enterprise, to fight poverty at the grassroots level.

It is a chance for potential investors to take a look at a booming sector, and meet current investors to share. This seminar is also a great opportunity to learn about social enterprise if you are not familiar with it.

So, see you all on April 20th @ Metropolitan YMCA,

Please also register via our registration form for us to manage the catering service (no under or over capacity), and note that we charge 5 SGD for catering purposes (snack food + soft drinks).
