Along with IIX and Shujog’s rapid growth as leaders of the Asian Impact Investing and Social Enterprise spaces, IIX and Shujog have been busy with field work, speaking at various conferences, and conducting workshops.

Since the beginning of the year, such conferences and workshops include a keynote at the International Finance Corporation’s Sustainability Dinner (Singapore) as well as talks at an Executive MBA lecture at the Singapore Management University (Singapore); a Malaysian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association Networking Brunch (Kuala Lumpur); the Barclays Capital International Women’s Day Luncheon (Singapore); and the Morgan Stanley ESF Forum (Hong Kong).

Furthermore, IIX and Shujog have also been represented as panelists at Wharton’s Social Impact Conference (Philadelphia); the Philippines Social Enterprise Forum held by the Asian Development Bank (Philippines); the Family Office Leadership Summit (Singapore); and the Morgan Stanley ESF Forum (Hong Kong). IIX and Shujog have also held multiple Impact Academies, including one in Hong Kong for UBS clients.

In addition, the team has also done field work in Bangladesh and is getting ready to go to Cambodia, Indonesia, and the Philippines for Social Enterprise mapping and Impact Assessments.

We look forward to continuing our participation in conferences and workshops, thus further helping to advocate and push forward the Impact Investment and Social Enterprise spaces in Asia!
