Continuing with the Breaking Boundaries theme from AVPN’s Annual Conference in Singapore, the AVPN India Summit 2019 invites philanthropists, corporations, impact investors, financial institutions, policymakers and capacity builders to break down barriers and collaboratively address complex challenges facing the region.
Backed by a rich tradition of social entrepreneurship, collaborative philanthropic culture, developed impact investing market and engaged corporate sector, the Indian social economy is one of the most advanced in Asia. From the mandatory CSR law to the mainstreaming of India’s impact investing and ESG investing markets, impact is being increasingly magnified in India’s private sector.
Policymakers are also exploring greater participation from the private sector and domestic philanthropy to partner and invest meaningfully in key social challenges while creating inclusive societies. In light of these trends, AVPN is leveraging its convening power to pool diverse resources across the sector for sustained impact.
With deep dives into India’s education, livelihoods, climate action, gender, health and nutrition sectors, the Summit will:
- Feature success stories and learning opportunities across the AVPN network;
- Highlight social investing innovations and best practices;
- Strategise to accelerate efforts in tier-2 and -3 cities of India.
