Nonprofit organizations have moved well past the time when technology and data were treated as standalone entities. Now they are an integral and critical part of our organization’s operations, on par with fundraising, communications, and other core functions. And like those other core functions, we must examine our technology and data strategies to properly evaluate and prioritize our needs and successfully build our digital capacity. How we do this is the theme of this year’s "Data on Purpose 2019: “Navigating the Digital Now.”
SSIR will assemble leading experts and scholars to weave together the latest research- and practice-based insights from data scientists and researchers, nonprofit and foundation leaders, policymakers, and other prominent experts, to help identify what is truly important, versus simply what is possible or what is urgent.

Since it's inception in 2014, Sankalp Africa has become one of the region's leading events for social entrepreneurship and impact investing.

In partnership with the Inclusive Business Action Network (iBAN), AVPN is implementing a 3-part programme to raise awareness of the concept of inclusive business, train inclusive businesses in becoming impact-investment ready, and explore how capital providers can fit inclusive businesses into their portfolios.
AVPN invites you to the first session in the series which will bring together a broad ecosystem ranging from inclusive business owners to investors, philanthropists and government representatives. The evening will begin with a panel discussion to bring clarity to the value of inclusive business and opportunities for growth in Thailand. The gathering will conclude with a networking reception, encouraging participants to connect and learn from one another as well as interact with both international and local experts.
The third annual Investing for Impact event will analyse:
- Where the worlds of corporate bosses and seasoned impact investors align and where they collide
- The possibility of making every investment an impact investment
- The realities for leaders of funds, companies and NGOs alongside the rise of impact investing
- Impact investing spin vs substance
- The varying meanings of purpose for companies and investors
The Summit will bring together a diverse group of funders and resource providers from Myanmar and the Asian region to discuss collaborative and outcome-focused social investment strategies and opportunities. From corporate philanthropy to CSR to impact investing, the conference will cover a range of investment approaches, as well as concentrate on selected impact areas and AVPN’s curated selection of Social Purpose Organisations – NGOs and social enterprises – listed on its Deal Share Platform.
The event offers a rich blend of presentations, workshops and networking opportunities framed by the State of Green Business report that analyses key sustainability metrics and trends.
