Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in developing countries will require the development of an impact investment and startup ecosystem. Given this, in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (hereinafter, “JICA”), DI has been exploring different options to build an impact investment ecosystem in Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries. At the conference, DI has presented insight into the said subject with a presentation titled “How to be a Great Social Startup” showcasing our research findings found through real-life project implementations with JICA and the knowledge as an investor.

  • Date: March 30, 2022 (Wednesday) from 9:00~11:30 (local time in Vietnam)

■ DI’s global activities
DI strives to support the creation of new businesses through public-private partnerships, financial schemes, and collaboration between major corporations and startups to maximize the social impact of social programs at a national and global level.
