There has been a rising movement towards sustainable society within business and investment here in Vietnam. 'Using business as a force for good' has become a new-normal and there are many impact enterprises creating social innovation through business.
In order for social problems to become the basis for new opportunities in future society, not only impact entrepreneur's passion but also appropriate sources of capital for impact enterprises are needed.
We cannot only accelerate Impact enterprises; we need to make a whole ecosystem which can support continuous growth of social innovation. VIIN is a Network of Vietnam Impact Investors. VIIN will lay the foundations for social innovation.
